Sugared Strawberries 🍓


Thankfully Spring is right around the corner because I have Spring fever, BAD!  I saw a half quart of strawberries at the grocery store and all I could think of was sugared strawberries, springtime, and sunshine.  So.. you know… I bought them. 🙂

“….And they’ll be sowing the summer barley in the lower fields… and eating the first of the strawberries with cream. Do you remember the taste of strawberries?”

-Sam Gamgee (J R R Tolkien)



Sugared strawberries are a delicious topping for french toast, strawberry shortcake, cheesecake, brownies… I mean you name it and it’ll probably work!

When you mix diced strawberries with granulated sugar, add a splash of lemon juice and a pinch of salt, you end up with a delicious treat.

And when strawberries marinate in sugar they create their own syrup so, NO WATER NEEDED! 🙂
