Sugared Strawberries

2 points strawberries at room temperature
freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon
3-5 tablespoons sugar
cream fraiche or whipped cream, to serve


Trim strawberries and place in a bowl. Add lemon juice and 3 tablespoons of sugar. Mix gently and let stand about 15 minutes. Taste, then add more sugar if necessary.

Serve with whipped cream or sweetened creme fraiche.
According to Bistro: this dish improves with standing, but shouldn’t be left too long. If you make it just before a meal, it will be ready for dessert.

This is also suitable with peachess, nectarines, or mixed berries.
