Strawberry Sauce
Makes ½ cup
  • 1 cup (170 grams) chopped fresh strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons (36 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (15 grams) cold water
  • 1½ teaspoons (4.5 grams) cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon (1 gram) almond extract
  1. In a medium stainless steel saucepan, stir together strawberries and sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Using a potato masher, press (or mash) strawberry mixture until no large chunks remain. (It will not be smooth.)
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon (15 grams) cold water and cornstarch until smooth. Whisk cornstarch mixture into strawberry mixture. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook, whisking constantly, until thickened and cornstarch flavor has cooked out, 1 to 2 minutes. Press mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, discarding solids. Stir in almond extract. Let cool to room temperature.
