Strawberry glaze recipe for ice cream, cheesecake, yogurt, etc.

I hope you all had a good Passover or a happy Easter.  If you are participating in Monday, Mmm ... Dessert, then be sure to leave your post's link below.

Strawberry season is just starting and will be at its peak all through the month of May and into June depending on your climate and the strawberry varieties.  It's time to enjoy them, every which way we can.  This is a great recipe to use over sundaes or any kind of ice cream.  You can decorate cakes and cheesecakes.  It's delicious poured over yogurt, or it can be mixed into some sour cream for a very sweet and fast dessert.  I know you will enjoy this strawberry glaze recipe.  Enjoy!

Strawberry Glaze Recipe
2 cups strawberries
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons liqueur of choice (optional)

Wash and hull strawberries.  Dice 1 cup of the strawberries and pulse the other cup of strawberries in food processor to a thick puree.  Do not liquify or over-process.  Pour all strawberries, sugar, and cornstarch into a saucepan and stir over medium heat until thickened.  Remove from heat, add optional liqueur, cover and let stand until cool.

  10. This sounds delish - visiting you from Cookin' for My Captain's strawberry linky (:

  11. I wanna try this recipe--how do you suggest "storing" this?

  12. Carolyn: I would prefer to make it as needed. However, since there is sugar (a good preservative), it is cooked, and especially if you use the optional alcohol, it should keep in a glass jar in the refrigerator for at least a few days. You could also try storing it when it is still hot, and let the lid vacuum itself (pseudo-canning).

  13. this sounds tasty! thanks for linking this one up too!
