Grand Marnier Strawberry Sauce -Spring Flavours

   
Nothing like fresh Spring flavours. Strawberries are on top of my list of vibrant and flavorful spring foods. I’m planning to grow my own, next year for sure. On the mean time, I got some of these gorgeous passion red strawberries from the market.
They are big, beautiful and juicy.
The taste of this sauce will remind you that spring is HERE.

   
The ingredients are:
About 12 large strawberries. One whole lime, the juice and zest.
A couple of medium size cinnamon sticks or just one large. Two Tbsp. of cornstarch. And 1/4 cup of Grand Marnier, maybe 1/2 cup, it’s up to you ;-)

   
Upps, I almost forget, we also need about a cup of brown sugar.


   
In a saucepan bring to a boil 3 cups of water. Add a large cinnamon stick.
Let it boil for about 5 minutes or until the water has changed its color to a light red-brown, just like if you were making cinnamon tea.

   
Then add a cup of sugar, the strawberries, the lime zest and juice. Boil for about 5 minutes.

   
Meanwhile, dissolve the cornstarch in a ¼ cup of cold water. Make sure there are not lumps.

   
Once the strawberries are softened, add the dissolved cornstarch. Stir until begins to boil again and the sauce has thickened.
Remove the sauce from the heat and add the Grand Marnier.
Let it cool down and then refrigerate.

   
Server on top of a slice of cake with some fresh strawberries.

Devour immediately!
