  • 3 cups strawberries washed with stems removed divided

Strawberry Puree

  • Blend two cups of strawberries until a puree is formed.
  • Dice remaining strawberries. Set aside
  • Heat water, sugar, strawberry puree together to a boil. When water is at a boil, add diced strawberries, and simmer until the strawberries are very soft. Take through a sieve. Store in refrigerator.
  • Note: Reduce down to very thick if you want to use for frosting or cake.


You might want to add in a fresh herb to the syrup, such as basil.
