The burnt honey gives the strawberries a lovely, subtle caramel flavour. The sweetness of the strawberry should determine how many you use. If you have perfectly ripe strawberries then use sparingly.


1 punnet strawberries

2 tbsp honey

1 pinch of crushed salt flakes


1. Rinse the strawberries, remove the stalk and cut them into wedges.

2. Place them in a bowl with a small pinch of salt flakes.

3. Pour the honey into a pan and heat until it starts to darken slightly. Remove from the heat, allow to cool and then pour the honey over the strawberries.
