I love that this little recipe has run in our family for years, and I am very excited to share it with you…
These sweet marinated strawberries are your perfect summer friends, serve with a nice scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream and you will be wishing you were a strawberry yourself…swimming in that sweet, tangy, syrupy goodness…mmmm!
Wogalicious Marinated Strawberries
1 punnet of strawberries
1 orange, freshly squeezed
½ cup of caster sugar
½ shot of Contreau (optional)
2 cups of boiling water
Wash and cut strawberries in quarters, add to bowl. In a separate bowl, mix in sugar, freshly squeezed orange juice with boiling water until all the sugar is dissolved. Add boiling water mix to strawberries, add shot of Contreau (optional). Chill in the fridge for approx 2 hours before serving. Remember that the longer you leave in the fridge, the longer the strawberries have to suck up all that juicy goodness…this is an ideal dessert recipe to prepare the night before.
Serve with delicious creamy vanilla ice cream and wafers! Yum!!
