WOW! Rachel coincidentally cooks everything people post here. I like her, but she is not a chef, she is a home cook. There is a vast difference.

2 cups of juice drained from frozen strawberries
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 teaspoons cornstarch

Thaw strawberries in a collander and allow juice to drain into a bowl below. Reserve 2 cups of drained juice and place in a saucepan.

Mix sugar and cornstarch with the 2 cups of juice in saucepan. Slowly bring to a boil and cook juice until thickened, stirring constantly.

Allow the strawberries to continue to drain as the juice in saucepan is cooked.

Cool juice thoroughly, then add all of the well drained strawberries to the thickened juice. Mix well.
