It happens to the best of us. We buy strawberries, we plan to eat them before they turn bad and *poof* they start getting furry and smooshy. It can happen so fast! I hate throwing out food, especially strawberries which are one of the tastiest things on earth. So what do you do with strawberries that are not perfect, but not yet totally beyond hope?
One of my favorite things to do is to slice them and sprinkle a bit of sugar over them. Slicing them lets me cut off the iffy bits, and the sugar softens the berries and makes an amazing syrup on the bottom of the bowl. I decided to be fancy this time and chop up a bit of mint to mix in.
Well almost. It was really missing ice cream. But it was still really yummy!
