This is a recipe I got from my mom years ago...many years ago, it is one of the first recipes I got from her and I have held on to it and used it many, many times. So I was surprised that I couldn't find it on my blog today when I went to make it. So I dusted off my old recipe box and dug it out....
1 pkg strawberry kool-aid (or another flavor if you want to change the flavor)
1 cup sugar
4 Tbsp cornstarch
Mix all together in a heavy pan. *Make sure all lumps are out before adding water!
Add 1 3/4 cups water and bring to a boil. Stir continuously! When desired thickness is reached remove from heat, this only takes a few minutes! Stir in strawberries (or other fruit of your choice).
