Roasted Strawberries

Roasted Strawberries - A simple, delicious sauce made by roasting the strawberries in the oven over high heat.  Incredible!

It always thrills me when quick and easy recipes turn out to be so delicious! And that is exactly the case with today’s Roasted Strawberries.

Roasting strawberries – or any fruit for that matter – really deepens and intensifies the flavors of the fruit and the sweetness. In our recipe today, we tossed the strawberries with a little bit of sugar before roasting them under high heat in the oven, and the juices from the strawberries created a wonderful syrup.

The roasted strawberries you see here in our photos were added to our Roasted Strawberry Crème Fraîche Ice Cream but they would also make a delicious topping for strawberry shortcake or any other dessert.
