  • 2 1/2 cups strawberries
  • 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tbs water
  • 1 vanilla pod (or 2 teaspoon vanilla extract)


Rinse then cut strawberries in to quarters. Place them in to the pot and slowly add the arrowroot powder. Cover with the lid and bring to a boil, stirring lightly until foam forms that should be gently skimmed off the top. Cook for eight minutes and the last minute add lemon and vanilla pods and stir. Enjoy!
