Caramelised Baked Strawberries

Caramelised Baked Strawberries

This easy dessert is inspired by one my friend Janni Kyritsis taught me when we wrote Wild Weed Pie together. Throughout much of the year, strawberries are more about colour than taste. Heating them, especially with a touch of sugar, brings out their natural flavour. Baked strawberries make a simple dessert served with vanilla ice cream or crisp puff pastry biscuits, such as palmiers; we serve them with Janni’s double-baked chocolate soufflé in our Month of Greek as their acid balances the sweetness of the chocolate so well (not very Greek I know, it’s from the week we focus on his MG Garage days)! Serve a glass of the sparkling red dessert wine Brachetto d’Acqui with these strawberries for a truly memorable finish to any meal.

Serves 2

Ingredients
  • 1 punnet strawberries
  • ¼ cup castor sugar
  • Palmiers (or other crisp biscuit), for serving
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Rinse and hull strawberries, but don’t dry them.
  3. Roll them in castor sugar to coat well.
  4. Arrange on a baking paper-lined baking tray, spaced out in a single layer.
  5. Place in the oven for 10 minutes or so, until they soften slightly and sugar starts to caramelise.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.
