  • 2 heaping Tablespoons flour I use organic einkorn flour or organic unbleached flour – I don’t think whole wheat would work for this
  • 1/2-3/4 cup organic cane sugar or this palm sugar the palm sugar isn't quite as sweet, so taste test to see if it needs more
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice best from organic lemons or 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 3/4 cup water + more water as needed to get the consistency you want. You'll want it more thick for pie filling, more liquid for syrup.
  • 3-4 cups fresh or frozen organic fruit whatever kind you'd like. (I used strawberries & blueberries when I made it, just because I had some in the freezer leftover from last week's Creme Brule. Peaches, raspberries, or apples are good too!)


  • In a medium saucepan whisk together flour, sugar, lemon juice and water until well blended on a low-medium heat. (See above note about the amount of water). Add all but 1 cup of the fresh or frozen fruit, reserving the rest. Stir occasionally until it comes to a gentle boil (about 10 minutes or so) and is the desired consistency. Add another 1/2 cup or so more fruit right toward the end of cooking, so there will be some chunky pieces of fruit that aren't cooked all the way down.
