For the Fruit Glaze:
1/2 c. Sugar
1 1/2 c. Fruit Juice
Corn Starch or Ultra Gel *See Below
2 Tbsp. Corn Syrup
To make the Fruit Glaze:
Mix cornstarch OR Ultra Gel and 3/4 c. fruit juice** in a separate small bowl, stir until dissolved.
Mix sugar and 3/4 c. fruit juice together in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.
Add cornstarch/fruit juice mixture to boiling sugar/fruit juice, reduce heat and cook until mixture thickens and is turning clear, stirring constantly.
Add corn syrup and cook for 1 minute.
Cool fruit glaze slightly and then drizzle, lightly brush, or “paint” onto fruit.
This glaze works well for fruit in a tart, pie, fruit pizza, cheesecake or regular cake to give it that glossy, professional look.
*For thin glaze, 1 Tbsp cornstarch or 2 Tbsp Ultra Gel. For medium glaze, 1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch or 3 Tbsp Ultra Gel (my favorite consistency). For thick glaze, 2 Tbsp cornstarch or 4 Tbsp Ultra Gel.
**The glaze will pick up the flavor and slight color of the fruit juice you choose, so pick your juice based upon this. Apple and pear juices are the mildest and clearest, while grape and berry juices are a darker, reddish color with more intense flavor.
