Strawberry Maple Jam

It only takes 12 minutes to achieve this easy strawberry maple sauce. And while you can store it in an airtight container for up to a week, we bet it’ll be gone within a few days. There are so many delectable ways to apply this quick and easy sauce!

Our favorite way to spread the joy of this “jam” is on maple buttermilk biscuits. The vibrant, fresh taste of sweetened strawberries enlivens the robust bite of the flaky, maple washed pastry. It’s a combination, worthy of repeating breakfast after breakfast.

If your pantry is out of jam, you won’t be in a jam! When you’re craving a layer of soft, sweetened fruit on top of toast or swirled into oatmeal, all you need is frozen fruit and some maple syrup. While it’s not ~technically~ jam, the sauce thickens enough during cooling that it’s reminiscent of the condiment. But you can enjoy this sauce beyond bowls and biscuits.

Dollop this easy maple strawberry sauce over ice cream scoops and cheesecakes for an added element of sweetness. Decorate your glass with the sauce before pouring in a fruit smoothie. Add it to crepes and French toast!

However you use this sauce we hope you enjoy the ease of making it.


Makes 1 cup

Prep time

1 minute

Cook time

10-12 minutes


  • 10 oz frozen strawberries, about 2 cups
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup Dark, Robust maple syrup


  1. Combine the strawberries, lemon juice and maple syrup in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Stir the strawberries to coat them in the maple syrup. When the strawberries have released their juices and softened, smash them a bit to break them down further.
  3. Cook the strawberries, stirring occasionally, until they’re mostly broken down and the sauce has thickened a bit, about 10-12 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and transfer the sauce to a heat resistant container and let it cool. Keep stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.
