Recipe by evelyn/athens
This is a traditional, Danish summer dessert, slightly adapted. Very cooling and refeshing.

I thought this was very good. Instead of cooling in individual cups I chilled it in a large bowl and allowed everyone to serve themselves. We had it with whipped cream. Next time I may cut back the cooking time as we felt it might be better if the strawberries were firmer and not quite so soft. I think this would also be delicious on vanilla ice cream, shortcake or angel food. It has a lot of possibilities.

- 1 cup sugar (or to taste)

- 1⁄2 cup cornstarch
