How often do you eagerly get out and collect as many rows as you can, however, don't always get a chance to turn those rows into a quilt? This year we have you covered - we have teamed up with 3 of our favourite stores and are offering 4 different rows to make into...placemats! They are fun, functional and a bit different than the traditional rows! Each placemat features a different fruit and colourway. Can you say summer patio table!!!

  • If you like a smoother sauce, cook the topping for a couple minutes longer than the recipe calls for.
  • If you like more strawberry pieces in your sauce, check it at 15 minutes as that may be enough for you.
  • Bottled lemon juice works great, but fresh lemon juice really makes the strawberry topping sing.
  • Don’t forget to stir the sauce! If you don’t stir it, the sugars will burn.

Strawberry sauce will keep refrigerated for up to two weeks.
