More like a strawberry jam . . .sweet and yummy.
Wash berries and remove tops. Quarter the strawberries. Combine with sugar and vanilla extract in a small pan.
Cook over a medium-high heat until syrup releases and thickens. Stir occasionally for about 15 minutes.
Use a wooden spoon to smash some of the berries as it cooks.
Once thick, remove half and puree in a blender. Add back to the pot and stir.
Use immediately or store in refrigerator.
