This strawberry topping features (1) whole strawberries and (2) a strawberry compote. It’s bright, light, and sweet but not too sweet. It’s a great way to enjoy strawberries in season!
- 1 pound (454g) strawberries, hulled and cut in half (or into quarters if large)
- 3 ½ tablespoons Simply Nature Organic Cane Sugar
- ½ tablespoon lemon zest
- Sea salt
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
In a medium bowl, combine the strawberries, sugar, lemon zest, and a pinch of salt. Toss well to combine.
Transfer half of the strawberries to a small or medium saucepan. Keep the other half and allow them to macerate in the bowl.
Cook the strawberries over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the berries break down and the liquid thickens into a syrup. Reduce the heat as needed to maintain a simmer.
Turn off the heat, then stir in the lemon juice.
