Basil-Marinated Strawberries

Looking for an updated version of sugary sweet strawberries?  How about basil-marinated strawberries?  I found this recipe online from the San Diego Reader.  It comes from William Bradley, the executive chef of Addison.  Try it with your favorite scoop of ice cream!  It's delicious!


2 cups water

2 cups sugar

4 basil leaves, whole

2 baskets fresh strawberries


Place water, sugar, and basil leaves in a small pot. Bring mixture to a boil. Remove from heat and cover with plastic wrap. Let liquid cool down and steep for 5 minutes.

Wash the strawberries. Remove green stems and cut berries lengthwise in half. Remove plastic wrap from syrup mixture and discard basil leaves. Add strawberries to syrup mixture and place in a refrigerator for one hour to marinate.

To assemble, spoon one ladle of strawberries and syrup mixture each into four chilled bowls and serve.
