2 pints strawberries, hulled and cut in half
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Fresh mint sprig, for garnish
Put the strawberries in a bowl, add the sugar, zest and vanilla and stir. Leave to macerate for 30 minutes at room temperature. The sugar will soften the fruit and draw delicious juices out to make a delicious syrup.
Top with a sprig of fresh mint before serving!
