Poached Strawberries

These poached strawberries are so easy to make and so versatile.  You make the poaching liquid first with your choice of rose, sweetener and vanilla and then pour it over the strawberries and let it cool and chill.

Strawberries are the jam!

The poached strawberries absorb the rose syrup well and goes great with just some yogurt and thyme.  I’ve also added them to ice cream and made some frose with the poached strawberries.
