Compotes can be served on waffles, pancakes, French toast, crepes, cheesecake or whatever you fancy. I actually served it on my Shortbread Wedges.
1 box of fresh strawberries ( 16oz or 454gm)
1 lemon ( or if you prefer less sour, 1/2 lemon)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp. corn starch
Wash the strawberries and husk the leaves out. if you have pretty big strawberries, cut them in half.
Zest and juice the lemon.
Take a small saucepan and over medium heat, combine sugar, water, cornstarch and mix well.
Add in the strawberries, lemon juice and lemon zest.
Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 mins. Leave to cool.
Your Strawberry Lemon Compote is now ready for your use.
