Strawberries – Make the most of it!


As you know, strawberries are a very delicate fruit that should be eaten in a very short period of time. As I love to eat strawberries, everytime I see a good deal I buy more at once. To guarantee its quality for up to 4 days, I usually use the following tip:

– Prepare the strawberries by washing them and taking out their leaves;
– Cut in halfs;
– Put them in a bowl;
– Add 2 tbsp of sugar, half a cinamon stick and a little water;
– Mix just a little and place the bowl in the fridge.

This way you preserve the quality of the strawberries and even get a lovely and light syrup.

Note: If you’d like a special touch, simply add one tbsp of Port Wine! 😉
