Roasted in white wine with orange and lemon juices, the flavor of the strawberries intensifies. This is a good technique to perk up less than stellar berries. Use the strawberries as a topping for a simple dessert like Citrus Cornmeal Cake.


  • 1 small orange

  • 1 small lemon

  • ¼ cup dry white or rose wine

  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup

  • 2 quarts strawberries, hulled and halved (6 cups)

  • 2 star-anise pods


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel three 2-inch-long strips of zest each from orange and lemon, then juice both (you should have 1/4 cup juice total). Stir wine and maple syrup into juice. Place strawberries in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Add juice mixture, zest strips, and star anise; stir to combine. Roast, stirring once, until sauce is slightly syrupy and strawberries turn bright red, 1 hour, 20 minutes to 1 hour, 30 minutes. Let cool completely. (Strawberries can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 3 days.)
