1 lb strawberries, rinsed and hulled and quartered
1 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
Bring all ingredients to a simmer in a saute pan, and cook until juices are released and the fruit is very soft (about 10-12 minutes). Allow mixture to cool for several minutes and then pour into a blender or food processor.
Process until smooth and then press the juice through a fine mesh sieve (I used a large spoon to coax the juice from the pulp and seeds through the sieve). This step is crucial - crunchy strawberry juice is no bueno.
Refrigerate in a tightly covered container. Yields about 2 cups.

Note: This isn't a sugary-sweet coulis. If you're looking for something sweeter, add more honey sugar.
