homemade strawberry syrup

2 cups strawberries

1 cup sugar

3/4 cup water

1 tablespoon starch

1/4 cup water

Wash the strawberries and remove the stalks

Mash the strawberries to the consistency you want, I like the sauce chunky with visible bits of strawberries. You can pulse the strawberries in your mixer or food processor if you like the sauce to be smooth.

In a put place the strawberries, sugar and 3/4 cup of water.

Bring to a boil over medium low heat, stirring every now and then for 10 minutes

When you have 5 minutes left in the cooking time, dissolve the corn starch in the 1/4 cup of water and add it to the syrup while stirring. This will thicken the sauce and give it a beautiful consistency.

Store the left over sauce in a clean dry jar in your fridge, it will last up to two weeks
