Roasted Strawberries

With strawberry season fast approaching take advantage of the season and get ready to start picking fresh strawberries. It’s almost time to over-indulge in one of life’s simply pleasures. Strawberries are more often used fresh but there are many benefits to letting strawberries spend time in the oven. Roasted strawberries become very soft and tender. Their flavor becomes more intense as some of the water inside the berries evaporates leaving behind the intensely concentrated, sweetness of the berries, along with a wonderful, ruby red, sweet juice.

Recipe Idea

Tossing the berries with sugar, honey or balsamic vinegar adds flavor and the sugar helps to draw out the excess juice adding to the goodness factor. For a Quick and Easy Dessert Idea: Chiffonade a few mint leaves, toss leaves with the warm roasted strawberries, add a dollop of whipped cream and serve. You can also toss the chiffonade mint leaves with the warm roasted strawberries, and spoon over vanilla bean ice cream. So simple, yet so scrumptious.                              roasted strawberries

Vanilla Sugar

This recipe doesn’t call for vanilla sugar but you can easily make your own or purchase vanilla sugar. How to Make Vanilla Sugar is an easy to follow ‘recipe.’ You might be surprised at how easy it is. Another source for vanilla sugar is to purchase it online. We purchase vanilla sugar online from Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant  Their vanilla sugar is made with vanilla beans and powdered sugar. Super delicious sprinkled on pretty much anything.
