Step 1: Preparing & Roasting the Strawberries

Preparing & Roasting the Strawberries
  • 16 oz (1 qt) strawberries, hulled
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup, Grade A dark amber or dark
  • 2 tbsp Sweet Balsamic Reduction recipe, at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp framboise, optional


If choosing to use the Sweet Balsamic Reduction recipe, prepare and set aside.

To start the strawberries, first position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 375°F (190°C). Have ready a 9 × 13 × 2-inch baking pan or any pan with shallow sides that is large enough to hold the berries in one layer.

Cut smaller strawberries in half and larger berries into quarters, or sixths, and spoon into a medium bowl.

Mix the maple syrup and Balsamic Reduction in a small dish. Spoon over the strawberries and toss with a spatula to coat.

Pour the berries along with the liquid into the baking pan, arranging the berries in a single layer.

Transfer to the preheated oven and roast for 15 minutes, or just until the berries have softened. Don’t overcook or the strawberries will become mushy. Once done, remove from the oven.

Drain the berries through a strainer, set over a mixing bowl, reserving both the liquid and the berries.

If you have more than 2 tbsp of cooking liquid, place it in a small saucepan over high heat and boil for a minute or two, or until reduced slightly and thickened. Pour into a small container and reserve until needed.

Put the berries into a serving dish or container and add the framboise, if using. Whether or not the framboise is added, more liquid will accumulate. Add the reserved cooking juice, just before using.

    Victoria, for best learning, we’d like our students to make the reduction and use it in this recipe. There is a lot of learning to be had inthe making of the reduction. Acid and sweet are best for roasting fruit. However, you may choose to use something else.
