Strawberry Topping

Martha Stewart Living, July 2004

Here's an easy technique for turning strawberries into a juicy compote that's delicious spooned over ice cream or cake. Hull and slice 2 cups berries, then mix in 2 tablespoons each sugar and lemon juice; cover and let macerate, or stand and soften, at room temperature for 1 hour. This summer, while berries are so plentiful and flavorful, prepare some extra -- the topping freezes beautifully in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
