Nothing is better than fresh strawberries from your own garden or your next farmers market!

Nothing is easier than cooking your own strawberry compote

Ok! Lets get started. First I stem the strawberries and cut them into thin slices. I put the strawberry slices, coconut sugar and water in a medium size pan and bring everything to a boil on medium high heat. I boil my compote for about 5 minutes not longer. Otherwise the strawberry slices will be a muss. During those five minutes of boiling I mix the cornstarch and the tablespoon of water. I stir the cornstarch water mix really well so that the cornstarch is dissolved.

After the short boiling time I pour the cornstarch-water mix into the pan and stir constantly until the sauce has thickened. The sauce is thickening when it boils once again.

When the liquid has thickened the compote is ready!
