Slice strawberries into a generous 1/4″ slices or half or quarter strawberries, depending on size. Place in a heavy saucepan and add sugar. Heat over medium heat until the strawberries begin to give up their juices, then stir. Bring to a simmer, stirring as necessary and cook until the sauce has thickened and strawberries are at the desired softness, about 8 to 12 minutes.
Remove from heat. The sauce will thicken as it cools. Store in the refrigerator.
