This is my favorite way to prep strawberries for strawberry shortcake or just to serve with thick creamy Greek yogurt.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar

Directions

Wash the strawberries and remove the green stems. Cut the strawberries and place them in a bowl. Toss them with the sugar and cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and even overnight. The sugar will draw moisture out of the berries and naturally make a sweet strawberry syrup.
