Orange-Marinated Strawberries

Created by jclawson, Monday, 06 December 2010


Turn a simple bowl of strawberries into a gourmet dessert with this recipe from Mmmmiami: Tempting Tropical Tastes For Home Cooks ($27.50, Henry Holt & Company) by Carol Kotkin, a food writer, instructor, and classically trained chef, and Kathy Martin, food editor of the Miami Herald. If you love the flavors of Florida, Latin America, and the Caribbean, or if you want to learn how to cook with tropical ingredients, this 352-page hardcover book is a classic. The following ingredients list calls for orange liqueur, such as the popular Triple Sec, but I used the new Bacardi O, an orange-flavored rum. I carry a zester in my galley. It’s a tiny, lightweight, inexpensive tool that makes it easy to zest an entire lemon, lime, or orange in a minute or two.


At a glance
2 quarts strawberries
2 tablespoons sugar
Grated zest of 1 orange
1/3-cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon orange liqueur


Wash and trim the strawberries, cut in half lengthwise, and arrange in a single layer in a shallow pan. Whisk together the sugar, orange zest, orange juice, and orange liqueur. Pour over the strawberries and let them steep, covered, at room temperature for 30 minutes. Serve alone or with whipped cream or ice cream.
