Create a clear glaze to sweeten your berries and fruits and make them look more attractive with a simple sheen. Made with a starch, water and a little flavouring, a clear glaze can turn ho-hum tarts into elegant desserts. Use the gelatinous powers from the liquefied starch to make the glaze set up into a gel, encasing your fruits in a shiny, sweet coating.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Pour 1 cup of water into a small sauce pan. Add 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 tsp of clear vanilla extract.

  2. 2

    Stir the ingredients to combine over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the water begins to simmer.

  3. 3

    Mix 1 tbsp of cassava starch or cornstarch with 1/4 cup of water in another bowl until the starch is dissolved.

  4. 4

    Pour the starch mixture into the hot water stirring constantly. Allow the mixture to simmer for one to two minutes until it has thickened. Remove the pan from heat.

  5. 5

    Pour the glaze over fruit or other desserts while slightly warm. Allow the glaze to set in the refrigerator for one hour.

Tips and warnings

  • Use cassava starch if the cornstarch makes the glaze to cloudy. Find clear extracts in the cake decorating aisle of a craft store.
