Ingredients

  • 450g strawberries
  • 1-2 tbsp honey
  • 1-2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp mint leaves

Method

Serves 4

Hull the strawberries and slice thickly into a bowl. Mix the honey and lemon juice together. Chop the mint and immediately add to the honey.

Taste to check that the balance of honey and lemon is correct. It should be neither too sweet nor too tart.

Add the honey mixture to the fruit and toss gently. Taste again, remembering that it is the sweetness of the strawberries that will really determine if more honey or lemon is needed.

Serve immediately, or chill and serve within an hour.
