Marinated Strawberries with Dessert Crepes


Marinated Strawberries with Dessert Crepes recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

The fresh berries that are in season right now are simply irresistible.  I had a flat of them in the refrigerator the other night and I decided to use them for a quick and easy dessert. I marinated the berries in the afternoon and then while my husband cleaned up from dinner, I made a quick batch of Whole Wheat Crepes. We topped them with these marinated strawberries and a dusting of powdered sugar. They were delicious. This dessert was a special treat and we all loved it. We'll be doing this again for a breakfast this season, while the berries are still so wonderful.

Marinated Strawberries with Dessert Crepes
(printable recipe)

1 lb fresh strawberries, stems removed and cut into bite size pieces
2-3 tablespoons sugar
juice of one large orange, enough to cover the berries

Wash and prepare berries. Place them in a small bowl or mason jar. Sprinkle sugar on top and toss to coat. Let this rest on the counter for 30 minutes to an hour. The sugar should dissolve and begin to create a syrup with the strawberries. Add the orange juice and toss to coat. Let this rest in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours. The berries will taste best at room temperate, so remove them from the refrigerator at least a half hour before serving.

The berries were delicious on their own and even more delicious with the crepes.
