Strawberry Glaze

I'm so thrilled to have Stefania join the blog!! I'm so excited to get some new authentic Italian recipes. It is definitely one of my favorite cuisine!

I have been meaning to post this recipe ever since strawberries came into season. I figured I had better do it quick before they are completely gone.

This glaze works well both as a topping for strawberry short cake or to make *fresh strawberry pie. And it's so simple!

2 tbsp (30ml) strawberry jello powder (FYI: a small box contains about 6 tbsp so after you use it, you can put a clip on the bag and seal it up to use for the next time. This is the only ingredient that may be a bit hard to find but I've seen it at Carrefour and City shop so you shouldn't have too much trouble)
2 Tbsp (30ml) cornstarch
1/3 cup (80ml) sugar
1/2 cup (100g) cup water
pinch of salt
1 tsp(5ml) lemon juice


In a small saucepan add the strawberry gelatine.
Add cornstarch,
pinch of salt

water and lemon juice.
Stir to combine.
Heat on medium high until boiling. Boil for one minute, while stirring.
Cool slightly; about 5 minutes. Pour over cut strawberries.
Stir to combine.

 Serve over cake for strawberry short cake.

*If making fresh strawberry pie, double the amount of glaze. After combining the glaze with the starwberries, pour into a precooked pie shell or graham cracker shell. Chill until set and top with whipped cream.
