- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 pint strawberries, stems and leaves removed
Place sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan over high heat; stir, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat, and allow the syrup to cool completely. Place half the berries in the jar of a blender; add the syrup. Puree until smooth; pass through a fine sieve or colander. Chop remaining berries; stir into strawberry puree. Serve (or store in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 3 days).
