There’s nothing better than fresh picked

So enter today’s Farm Share Friday recipe. After watching this week’s episode of MasterChef (which was all about doughnuts), I thought I would start my strawberry challenge by making a delicious glaze. Won’t you join me in making some mouthwatering, strawberry-glazed doughnuts? You won’t be sorry with this recipe.

Strawberry Glaze
Excerpted from Homemade Doughnuts by Kamal Grant of Sublime Doughnuts

This recipe is a good way to enhance the flavor of fresh strawberries year-round. For example, when you buy strawberries in the wintertime, they are often a bit sour, and not at their peak flavor. Dipping your strawberries in this glaze can bring out the strawberry’s natural sweetness at any time of year.

Ingredients
2/3 cup (160 ml) water
2 pounds (908 g) fresh strawberries, stems removed
1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
2 teaspoons (10 ml) lemon juice
1 tablespoon (8 g) cornstarch
3 tablespoons (45 ml) cold water

Instructions
Combine the 2/3 cup (160 ml) water, strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer for up to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. As the strawberries soften, use a wooden spoon to break them into pieces to release their flavor. Remove from the heat.

Using a strainer, pour the liquid into a bowl, pressing the juices through the strainer with a wooden spoon. Discard the solids, and return the liquid to the pan over low heat.

Meanwhile, whisk the cornstarch with the cold water in a small bowl. Pour into the simmering liquid. Increase the heat to high, and continue to whisk the mixture until it thickens into a glaze, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the glaze from the heat, and pour into a separate bowl to cool. Once the glaze has reached room temperature, place in the refrigerator to chill.

After the doughnuts are cool, submerge half of the doughnut in the glaze, turn over, and repeat on the other side. Allow to drip dry.

Yield: Makes 2 cups (470 ml)
