Strawberry compote

Prep time: 10 minutes


  • 1.5 lb strawberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon or lime juice


In a small sauce pan, heat 1/2 cup water to a simmer. Add the sugar until it dissolves. Simmer and reduce until you have a nice, sticky syrup. Set aside to cool.

Separate the strawberries in half. Puree the first half (I just used a masher) and slice the second half. Combine all three ingredients and refrigerate.
