One of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh fruit in the grocery stores.  I  almost always tend to buy more than we can eat, that including fresh strawberries, and I wait until the last minute to use them up before they spoil.  

This summer I started slow roasting half of the strawberries when I buy them.  I like to roast them whole instead of slicing them.  The berries hold their shape well while roasting coming out plump and luscious.

The juices released from the fruit while roasting reduces to a thick sauce enhanced by a generous sprinkle of sugar and light sprinkle of salt and pepper.  Yes. Salt and pepper.  It's all about balance.  

For this recipe, I use fine grain salt and pepper.  It dissolves quickly and lends a smoother flavor.

We spoon our roasted strawberries over whipped cream on pound cake, ice cream, cheesecake, rice pudding, yogurt parfaits, and the list goes on.

One of my favorite ways to eat roasted strawberries this summer is in No Churn Ice Cream.  Marvelous!

I hope you discover the magic these roasted strawberries bring to your summer.  I have a feeling you will not be able to stop eating them spooned over and also in plenty of summer desserts.  Enjoy!
