Strawberry puree

Prep. Time: 2min. Cooking Time: 15Min. Yield: 1/2 cup


  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water


  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the fresh strawberries, granulated sugar, and lemon juice. Blend or process until smooth and well combined. You can adjust the sugar according to your preference for sweetness.
  2. Pour the strawberry mixture into a medium saucepan and place it over medium heat. Cook the mixture, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes, or until it begins to simmer gently.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and cold water until smooth, creating a slurry. This will be used to thicken the strawberry puree.
  4. Slowly pour the cornstarch slurry into the simmering strawberry mixture, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Continue to cook the puree for 2-3 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened to your desired consistency. Keep in mind that the puree will thicken further as it cools.
  5. Remove the saucepan from heat and allow the thickened strawberry puree to cool for a few minutes. If you prefer a smoother texture, you can strain the puree through a fine mesh sieve to remove any seeds or remaining solids.
  6. Transfer the thickened strawberry puree to a jar or airtight container and refrigerate until completely cooled. The puree can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
