  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries halved or quartered
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice bottled or fresh
  • 4 tablespoons sugar


  • Preheat oven to 175 if possible, or 200 degrees
  • Combine all ingredients in large bowl and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes until strawberries have released their juices
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mat and place strawberries on top in a single layer
  • Bake for 2-3 hours with the door ajar, rotating every 30 minutes.  The strawberries are done when the edges are darkened and they have a sticky texture.
  • Allow to cool completely before storing.  Will keep best refrigerated or frozen.
