Simple Strawberry Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by KitchenKelly

I serve this with cheesecake. You can change it up to use any kind of jam you would like. A slight guess on the yield.

Gorgeous colour, and a simple sauce to prepare. I started to mix in the cornstarch and it was thickening up really fast so I did not use all of it. As I continued to cook it, the sauce got too thick and I had to add more water to it. I have attached two photos for you. One is the sauce itself, and the other is the dessert that I used it on. Thx for sharing KitchenKelly. Made for Pick A Chef 2011.
