Precise measurment of the Higgs couplings is a central part of the energy-frontier physics program. Obtaining the small couplings to light states is particularly difficult. We describe a new technique for studying the Higgs coupling to the strange quark using H --> ssbar events at a 250 GeV e+e- collider. With this method, the sensitivity of the proposed FCC-ee collider is at a level of only a few times the standard-model expectation. This is a large improvement over previous proposals, yielding sensitivity to a variety of new-physics scenarios.
