Wash the strawberries and dry them with paper towels. Then deprive them of the stalk and cut them into pieces collecting them in a bowl or the container of a kitchen mixer.
In a thick-bottomed saucepan, collect the starch and sugar. Add the grated lemon peel and pour in the water, stirring with a whisk to avoid lumps.
Set over low heat to thicken while stirring.
Add the strawberry puree and continue stirring over low heat until the cream begins to thicken and leaves a veil/light coating on the whisk.
Turn off the heat and add the butter. Stir and transfer to a clean plate. Cover and let cool completely before using.
