Slow roasted strawberries to spread on crackers with cheese, on toast with butter, or spill over your morning yogurt.

I posted a dessert last Friday incorporating roasted strawberries, and I’m finding lots of ways to use these little guys. So I thought I’d do a post just on roasting them, since they’ve quickly become a new pantry item for me. I keep them stored in a zip-lock container in the refrigerator, and as of last count, they’ve lasted over 2 weeks without losing any of their punch. Tomorrow I’ll post a great, easy way to use them as an appetizer for your next party!

As you can see in the pictures, I don’t roast them until they’re completely dry. I like them a little syrupy, which makes them great for spreading on toast in the morning.

Some uses for these glorious babies:

Stir into your morning yogurt.

Spoon over some vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt and top with dark chocolate shavings.

Spread on some crackers with soft farmer’s cheese.

Make a strawberry mojito with them with muddled mint.


Roasted Strawberries (Great Pantry Item)

     by Susan Pridmore

     Makes 1/2 cup roasted berries

       Prep Time: 10 minutes

       Cook Time: 40 minutes


  • 1 pint fresh strawberries


Preheat the oven to 275˚ F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Hull the strawberries, removing their leafy top, and slice into 1/4” thick slices. Arrange on the baking sheet and roast for 40 minutes. When done, the strawberries should be limp, and somewhat dried out with some juices running across the parchment paper.

    Stunning! I’ve been wanting to make roasted strawberries for a while, but I still haven’t gotten around to it.

    I want to lick that juice on the side! This looks so good! Do you think I could roast thawed frozen strawberries? I have a bag of strawberries that I refrigerated while fresh…

      I haven’t tried doing this with thawed frozen berries. It would be an interesting experiment though. If you try it, please let me know how it works. I’ll do the same for you :-)

    Hi Susan! I seriously have to give this a try. Thanks for the suggestions too! I’m thinking about having it with pancakes or in yogurt. Yum!

      Seriously, Lyn, I’ve had it every day this week. I love this way of having strawberries. And it’s a great thing to do with them when they’re a couple of days old and starting to dry out in the refrigerator!

    This sounds too delicious. Would love some of these in the morning granola and yogurt.

    I bet these strawberries would be amazing with some fresh basil, and melted mozzarella. Or goat cheese. My mouth is watering just thinking about the possibilities…

      Totally, Christy! In fact I have a recipe I developed for a magazine along those lines that I’m going to post later today. Once these little gems are in your refrigerator, you’ll be surprised all the uses you’ll find for them :-)

    Your roasted strawberries are shining like precious stones. No doubt those babies must taste amazing and especially in some yoghurt (yummy!)

    • The Wimpy Vegetarian June 5, 2013 at 9:11 am #

      Thanks so much Helene! I love thinking of them as gems. They’re such an intense strawberry flavor, and a great way to use strawberries that are starting to dry out in the refrigerator.
