Ingredients

    Strawberries, 1lb Chopped
    1/4 cup sugar

Directions

Wash, remove stems, and cut up strawberries. Put into saucepan, add strawberries, sugar and water. Bring to a boil. Add the cornstarch and water mixture. Boil until it thickens a little. We like our syrup runny. If you want thicker syrup you can add more sugar. It made 7, 1/2 cup servings.

    Delicious, but a little runny for my taste. Then again, I didn't have any cornstarch and that probably would've helped if I'd been able to add it. I also found that I didn't need a half-cup of it; even for a big Belgian waffle 1/4 cup was plenty. Will make this again and try other fruits too. - 6/29/09

    This was FABULOUS...quick to make, and with the cornstarch just the right thickness for me. I tried it over low fat ice cream and felt like I was at an ice cream parlor having a major treat! - 6/30/10

    A little runny for me so I had to thicken it a little more. But I loved it on top of my whole wheat pancakes this morning! - 4/18/07

  • How do you think it would be if you used brown sugar instead? I wondered if it would be richer, and more maple syrup-like? - 2/8/11
