Ingredients

  • 1 pound strawberries sliced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 ½ teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar

For thickening the sauce

  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon water

Instructions

Make Strawberry Sauce

  • In a large saucepan over high heat, add strawberries, water, sugar, and lemon juice. Stir to mix and bring it to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or until the strawberries become soft.
  • Remove from heat and blend the strawberries gently (I used immersion blender.)
  • Strain the mixture through a strainer.
  • Then pour the liquid back to the saucepan on low heat.

Thicken the Sauce

  • In a small bowl, mix together corn starch with 1 tablespoon of water.
  • Pour the corn starch slurry into the simmering strawberry sauce. Stir constantly.
  • Increase the heat to high, keep whisking for about 5 minutes or until it thickens into a glaze.
  • Remove from heat, and pour it into a bowl or container to cool down.
  • Once it comes down to room temperature, store it in the refrigerator. Serve it as a topping for cheesecake, donuts, and pie, etc.

Notes

  • Add sugar gradually until you reach desired sweetness. 
  • Note that the sauce will become thicker once cooled. 
  • If you prefer to have a brighter color, you can add red food coloring to your sauce.
