Fresh Strawberry Syrup Sauce

So simple to make!  Awesome over French Toast, Waffles, Pancakes, and Ice Cream!

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups Strawberries, Mashed
1 cup Sugar
1/4 cup water
2 Tablespoons Cornstarch

DIRECTIONS:

1. Prep Strawberry by removing leaves and slicing in half.  You will need about 6 cups UNMASHED strawberries.  Once mashed it should reduce to around 3 cups.

2.  Over medium heat in a 3 quart saucepan add strawberries and 1 cup sugar.  You can add this by taste and not use the whole cup of sugar.  It just depend on how sweet your strawberries are.  Bring to a simmer.

3. Fill a measuring cup to 1/4 of a cup and add 2 tablespoon of water.  Stir until combine.

4.  Add in the cornstarch and water into simmering strawberry mixture.

5.  Bring to a simmer once again.  It will start becoming thick.

6.  If your desired thickness is not reached you can add another 2 tablespoons of water and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch.

7.  It shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes for it to thicken up.

You will need to stir this constantly.

Pour into mason jars and refrigerate until ready to use.

~Enjoy!~

Frozen Glitter Grapes

So Good!  So easy to make!  Perfect during the summer.

Ingredients:

Bunch of Grapes
1 (3 ounce package) Jell-o gelatin Any flavor of your choice, not prepared.  Generic works just as well.

Directions:

1. Rinse Grapes under water.  Patting almost dry with a paper towel.  You don’t want them dry….you need some moisture on them for the gelatin to stick.

2.  Roll a bunch of grapes in 1/3 of the box of gelatin.  After you have a grape coated put onto a plate and continue until all grapes are done.    Adding Gelatin as it gets low. ( I used lime Jell-0 Gelatin)

3.  Place in freezer for a couple of hours.  Then they are ready to enjoy.

~Enjoy!~

Note:  I tried placing the gelatin in a baggie and putting the grapes into the bag and just tossing.  It really didn’t get all the grapes coated to my liking.    So I just ended up rolling 4 or 5 at a time on a plate until all were coated.
