Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.

One summer our garden yielded 80 quarts of strawberries! A good portion of that was preserved as strawberry syrup. We treat ourselves to this sweet, warm mixture over waffles or pancakes. —Heather Biedler, Martinsburg, WV


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Dash salt
  • 2 cups chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Stir in strawberries, water and lemon juice until blended. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until mixture is thickened and strawberries are tender, 2-3 minutes.
