Mix water(2/3 cup ), Take about 750 gm of stems removed fresh strawberries. Add 3 cups of water, half cup sugar, 2 cups lemon juice to the strawberries. Place the contents in a pan and boil on high heat with thorough and constant stirring. Then mesh the strawberries into small pieces in the pan and cook on low heat for few minutes. 

After stopping the heating process, strain the mixture and squeeze the juice through strainer from the strawberries. Avoid the pulp and reheat again on low heat.

Take one tablespoon of cornstarch in a small bowl and whisk it with 3 tablespoons of water. Thereafter pour the cornstarch into the simmering pan.
