Fresh strawberries are extra delicious when poached with citrus, wine and mint.
Recipe type: Fruit
Cuisine: Fruit
Serves: 4
  • 1 c. fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 c. white wine (Sauvignon Blanc is great)
  • ½ c. granulated sugar
  • Few fresh mint sprigs
  • 3 c. strawberries, hulled (if they're very large, cut them in half)
  1. Combine orange juice, wine and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer, then add mint and strawberries and reduce heat.
  2. Allow berries to sit in the liquid for about 2 minutes, then turn off the heat and transfer the berries to a bowl.
  3. Remove the mint sprigs and over low heat, simmer the liquid a few more minutes to reduce to a syrup consistency.
  4. Serve warm or cool with cake, ice cream, whipped cream, etc. Or refrigerate up to a few days and enjoy as a tasty snack with a spoon!
