Strawberry season this year was epic…. Gigantic ripe strawberries, ravishingly red, sweet and succulent. There was an abundance of their glory all over the country, and it was very difficult not to buy batches on the way home every day. The downside was that if they stayed in the fridge too long, they’d go bad. And given that my little kitchen also has a little fridge and freezer, there was only so much I could freeze. The solution came like an epiphany – why not rescue my mountain of strawberries and sizzle them down into syrup? It was the best idea in the world!
