Strawberry Glaze

Introduction:

We used this glaze on puff pastry Danishes.  It’s not too sweet to mix with the taste of glaze on a puff pastry.  Turns out perfect every time.

Strawberry Glaze
Ingredients:

  1. ½ cup chopped strawberries
  2. 2 teaspoon of sugar
  3. 1 tablespoon of water and 1 teaspoon of water 
  4. 1 teaspoon of cornstarch

Directions:

  1. Place strawberries, sugar and 1 Tablespoon of water in a small saucepan on medium heat.  Cook strawberries until soft.  Mash with potato masher. 
  2.  In a small cup, mix cornstarch and 1 teaspoon of water.  
  3. While stirring strawberries, pour cornstarch mix into saucepan with strawberries.  Heat until thickened.  Remove from heat.  4 Drops of red food coloring may be used if color needs to be a brighter red. 

Conclusion:

This “glaze” can be used on any pastry where you need a jam or jelly.  It’s a snap to pick a half cup of strawberries out of the patch for this recipe, hull out the tops, and throw into the saucepan.  A strawberry huller makes the job even quicker.  Click on the picture to get one.
