Believe it or not I actually didn’t used to like strawberries. I know! It’s like a crime isn’t it?! A few years ago I finally saw the light and realised just how incredible these tasty little berries are. With that in mind – I began searching for as many easy strawberry recipes I could find.

Why strawberries?

Why not?! They’re juicy, full of good stuff (like vitamin C and manganese), incredibly tasty and, by gosh, they are bountiful in the months of July and August – we should absolutely be taking advantage! I love how versatile they are too. You can eat them as they are, enjoy them with cream, add them into cakes & bakes, turn them into jam & ice cream or even freeze them for later. Make the most of these fruity beauties while they’re here!

The Easiest Strawberry Recipe EVER

If I haven’t got time to actually make anything but I still want to enjoy those beautiful Summer strawberries, here’s what I do:

  1. Hull and quarter/slice some strawberries and place them into a bowl.
  2. Sprinkle over a little caster sugar and mix through.
  3. Leave to sit for 10-15 minutes to allow the juices to start flowing.
  4. Serve with ice cream, single cream, sweetened creme fraiche or anything else you fancy!

This is what’s called ‘macerating’ strawberries. The sugar draws out beautiful juices which makes them CRAZY tempting to eat! SO simple yet so divine.
