  • 500 g frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 teaspoons corn flour cornstarch


  • Add all ingredients to a heavy based saucepan over low heat. Heat stirring to dissolve the sugar.
  • As soon as the strawberries have thawed, add everything to a blender and purée (notes).
  • Return it to the saucepan, bring it to a simmer and let cook, stirring every so often until very thick and a little darker.
  • Strain the mixture


  1. I use a standard Australian 20ml tablespoon (= 4 teaspoons worldwide)
  2. If you would like some chunks of strawberry in your sauce, then take out a few pieces of the thawed strawberry before you puree it. Chop these pieces into chunks and add it back to the sauce after straining.
