Recipes for Over Ripe Strawberries

British strawberries are coming into their own just now, and are half price at Morrisons and BOGOF at Waitrose.
But when you buy a lot they can sometimes 'go over' to quickly. The answer? roast them or make a sorbet.

Preheat oven to 150. Place two pounds washed and dried strawberries, hulled but left whole, in a single layer in a 9-by-13 inch baking dish.
Drizzle with 5 tablespoons of honey, and toss gently to coat.
Bake until syrup begins to thicken and strawberries turn deep red and shrink slightly, about 1 hour 45 mins.
Let cool and serve over ice cream, yoghurt, biscuits or pancakes. Syrup will continue to thicken as berries cool.

Great sorbet recipes can be found here at the wonderful Miss Stewart's site.
