I saw some recipes online with cornstarch, and I said “no way”. So this was my simple experiment, and the OH and I went over to some friends’ place. We ate it with chocolate chip cookie bars and Greek yogurt, and it was astonishingly good.
1 box strawberries (take off the tops and chop)
1/8 cup sugar (or adjust to how sweet you want it, or substitute with an herbal sweetener)
1/8 cup water
In a pan, bring all the ingredients to boil. Reduce to a simmer. Give it a good stir now and again. Let it thicken.
If you like it chunky (I did) let it cool and bottle it. Or you could puree it and bottle it.
