Roasted Strawberries

Roasting strawberries is probably not something you think about. It is a quick thing to do with underripe fruit or those late winter strawberries that you get from the hothouse that may not be the best. Roasting, like it does for vegetables, helps caramelize the sugars in the fruit. It will make the strawberries sweeter and add some complex flavors to any dish. This recipe uses more than just the fruit to roast them, adding in vanilla, lemon, and sugar to help the caramelization and add extra flavor to a finished dish.

Key Takeaways:

  • Roasting caramelizes fruits and vegetables, bringing out natural sugars and intensifying flavor
  • You can roast things alone or as a quick dish to help perk up the flavor
  • Using sugar and lemon helps to give it extra bite and more sugar to caramelize

“Roasting intensifies the strawberry flavor and tenderizes firm, under-ripe fruit.”
