Roasted Strawberries


Yields about 1-3/4 cups.

As the strawberries roast, their juice thickens into a beautiful, sweet sauce. Use the roasted strawberries as a topping for ice cream, or go all out and try them in Triple Strawberry Ice Cream Sundaes.

  • 1 qt. (about 1 lb.) small ripe fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

Position a rack in the middle of the oven and heat the oven to 450°F. Toss the strawberries in a bowl with the sugar. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. When the oven is hot, roast the strawberries, giving them a stir every 5 minutes, until they’re soft and fragrant, about 15 min. total. Transfer the baking sheet to a rack to cool for 5 min., then scrape the berries with their sauce into a small bowl. If using in the ice cream sundaes, chill in the refrigerator until cold, about 2 hours, or up to a day.
