I wait all year long for those sweet, juicy, plump strawberries to hit the Farmers Market. Now that fall is just around the corner and the strawberries are losing their summer sweetness, I decided to coax a little more flavor from them by roasting them. It's so easy and it gives them a sweet, almost jam like flavor.

All you do is hull them and cut them in half. Toss with agave nectar or honey and a sprinkle of turbinado sugar. Roast for about 30 minutes until soft and juicy, let them cool and serve them any way you like. I put them on Greek yogurt but if you like dessert on the sweeter side you could add honey to the yogurt or serve them on ice cream, or pound cake and some whipped cream.

                                          ROASTED STRAWBERRIES

2 cups strawberries
4 tsp. agave nectar or honey
1 tsp. turbinado sugar

Greek Yogurt or ice cream

Preheat the oven to 400~ Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.

In a bowl, toss strawberries, agave nectar, and turbinado sugar together. Make sure the strawberries are coated evenly.

Place strawberries on prepared baking sheet. Roast in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the strawberries are soft and juicy.

Let the strawberries cool to room temperature. Spoon strawberries over yogurt or ice cream.
