Directions 7 steps | 25 Minutes

Step 1

Clean and pat dry the strawberries until they are thoroughly dry. Prepare a dish or tray with greased parchment paper or a silicone mat.

Step 2

Insert skewers into each strawberry through the top of the strawberry and 3/4 the way through.

Step 3

Add white sugar and water to a pot, insert cooking thermometer and heat at high until it boils. (Be careful not to touch the bottom of the pot with the thermometer to avoid an incorrect reading.)

Step 4

Once it is boiling, reduce to medium and keep watching the temperature, once it reaches 150°C/300°F lower to the lowest heat and begin making the candied strawberries immediately.

Step 5

Carefully dip strawberries one strawberry at a time, swirling them in the sugar and coating them on every side.

Step 6

Drip excess sugar and place strawberries on the parchment paper (or silicone mat). Repeat the process with all strawberries.

Step 7

Let the strawberries cool completely before eating. Enjoy!


Notes:

  • Candied strawberries are best eaten immediately as they will liquify over time.
