Can I use Frozen Strawberries to make this sauce?

Absolutely,  you can use frozen strawberries. My recommendation is to simmer them for a longer period of time as frozen strawberries will release lots of water.

How to make this Quick and Easy Strawberry Compote

(or Strawberry Sauce): 

First, wash and hull the fresh strawberries. Dice the berries into chunk size. The big ones I cut them into quarters and small ones in halves. Place them into a saucepan.

 Add sugar, a pinch of salt, orange juice, or water and place in the stove over medium-high and bring to a boil. Then using a potato masher or a fork, mash some of the berries to release some of their juices. This is optional but highly recommended:). Reduce the heat to low.

Next, in a small container add cornstarch and water and whisk until the cornstarch has dissolved.
