  • 1 pound of sliced strawberries
  • ¼ cup of water
  • 1 ½ teaspoon of lemon juice
  • ¼ cup of sugar

For the thickening sauce

  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon of water


The making of the sauce:

  • Mix in a saucepan the sugar, water, lemon juice and strawberries over high heat.
  • After bringing it to a boil, let it simmer for 10 minutes or until the strawberries softens.
  • When it’s soft enough, remove from the heat and start blending the strawberries with an immersion blender.
  • Strain the sauce mix and transfer the liquid back to the saucepan. Leave the saucepan on low heat.

To thicken the sauce:

  • Mix together the cornstarch and water in a small bowl.
  • Pour the cornstarch mix over the strawberry mix on the saucepan and stir well.
  • Elevate the heat and continue whisking for 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  • Once it thickens enough, remove it from the heat and let it cool down to room temperature after pouring it in a container.
  • When it reaches room temperature, you can leave it in the fridge for whenever it’s needed.
