Honey-Macerated Strawberries With Yogurt Recipe

May 17th, 2016

Macerating might sound complicated, but it’s really as simple as throwing together a marinade. Soaking strawberries in honey laced with mint, ginger, and cardamom not only softens them, but also draws out their juice to create a flavorful, thin sauce. Serve over yogurt for a light, refreshing breakfast or dessert—a lovely way to enjoy strawberries all spring and summer long.
