  • 2 cups fresh strawberries - cleaned and divided
  • 1 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¾ cup water


  • Clean and chop 1 cup strawberries, add to bowl and mash and set aside.
  • Clean and dice 1 cup strawberries, set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, stir together the sugar and cornstarch.
  • Stir in water and mashed berries. Bring to boil, stirring constantly.
  • Some people add red food coloring (there are vegan versions) and this is the time where you add a drop, if desired.
  • Cook and stir 3 minutes or until thick.
  • Remove from heat, stir in 1 chop diced strawberries. This is how you are able to get a sauce with more texture.
  • Transfer to bowl, let cool for 10-15 minutes.
  • Add to jar or container with lid.
  • Serve immediately or store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks in airtight sealed container.



This recipe makes 2 cups topping. I am guessing that ¼ cup is a serving but go for more if you like. The nutritional value is  based on ¼ cup.
