In a medium-sized saucepan, add the water and sugar.
Heat over medium-high heat and begin to make a simple syrup.
Cook for 3-4 minutes and allow it to reduce slightly.
Add the sliced strawberries to the simple syrup and cook them for 2-3 minutes.
They do not take long to soften.
Remove the pot from the burner.
If using an immersion blender, blend the strawberries and syrup until there are no large chunks.
The mixture will be thick.
If using a standing blender, pour contents into the blender and using the puree setting, puree until thick but smooth.
This topping can be used on
, on ice cream or anyway that strikes your fancy.
