RECIPE: Baked Strawberries

sayhellonowJune 5, 2008

I found this by accident, and thought it sounded pretty wonderful. I haven't made it yet but it's on my list of things to try - especially while strawberries are in season. It looks really easy. The recipe says heat oven to 180 C, but I don't know what that means, sadly.

Baked Strawberries

Ingredients:

750g strawberries (about 3 ¼ cups)

¼ to ½ cup vanilla sugar, other flavoured sugar, or plain white sugar (add less or more as your taste dictates)

Preparation:

1. Heat the oven to 180 C.

2. Place strawberries in a single layer in a very shallow baking dish (not a metal dish). You can hull them (remove the green top) or leave the green top on.

3. Sprinkle with the sugar. There will appear to be a lot of sugar for the amount of strawberries. DonÂt worry - this is pure indulgence!

4. For variety, add one or two of the optional ingredients.

5. Bake for 30 minutes. The strawberries will lose a lot of their juice, creating a strawberry syrup as the juice combines with the sugar.

6. Serve hot, warm or cold with ice cream, cream or mascarpone.

-------------------------------------------------

Optional: Choose zero or more of the following:

1 - 2 TBS strawberry or similar liqueur

A slice or two of fresh ginger, chopped finely

1 piece crystallized ginger, chopped finely

½ vanilla bean (if not using flavoured sugar), halved with the seeds scraped into the baking dish

A grind or two of fresh black pepper

Dried cranberries

Cinnamon stick

Sprig of rosemary

Lavender flowers

Honey instead of sugar

Let your imagination run wild (once you are used to cooking this dish), but donÂt underestimate the intensity of strawberry flavours. So make sure any ingredient that you use is compatible with strawberries.

That would be 350 oven temp. (Technically it would be 356, but 350 would work.)

The recipe sounds delightful!

Bet it would be good with turbinado/demerara sugar too. Wish strawberries weren't so expensive down here.

Thanks for the recipe.....there is a strawberry stand less than a half mile away next to the field where they grow.
And they are the best we have had for a long time!
