In small saucepan, bring sugar and 1/4 cup (50 mL) water to boil, stirring often; boil for 1 minute. Let cool completely. Stir in lemon juice.

Meanwhile, in food processor or blender, purée strawberries. Add syrup; whirl to combine. Pour into 8-inch (2 L) square metal cake pan; freeze until firm, about 8 hours. (Make-ahead: Cover and freeze for up to 1 week.)

Scrape fork across surface of frozen puree to form crystals. Spoon into dishes.
