Strawberry Topping

As I posted on May 29th with the help of my family, I have 4 gallons of Strawberries (see here). I used some of them to make strawberry ice-cream topping.

Strawberry Topping

2 cups diced strawberries
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup water
1 tablespoon corn starch
2 tablespoons water (in addition to 1/3 cup above)

Wash and cut strawberries into small pieces. Combine berries, sugar and 1/3 cup of water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. In a small bowl combine corn starch and 2 tablespoons of water. Add cornstarch to the boiling berries. Reduce heat and continue to boil for 4 minutes until it is thick, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and allow to cool before using. Store in fridge until ready to use.

NOTES: Upon researching this I found many recipes that were basically the same. Some say that you can freeze the topping for future use. I did freeze one batch. After I finish the batch in the fridge I will update to let you know how it worked.
