  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries (about 1 kg)
  • ½ cup raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest from one lemon
  • 2-3 tablespoons lemon juice squeeze this out of the same lemon you use for lemon zest
  1. Rinse the strawberries well then chop off the top part with the leaves. Cut the strawberries into halves or quarters. Place them in a pot. Add in the honey, lemon zest and lemon juice. Toss to combine.

  2. Place the pot on medium heat and cook covered for 10 minutes. Open the pot and using the back of a wooden spoon or a potato masher, mash the strawberries to break them down a little. Let them cook for another 10 minutes while you stir from time to time. Place in a glass jar to cool then store in the fridge.

  3. Enjoy on pancakes, muffins, crepes, bread and more!
