Simon’s Choice – BBQ Strawberries

The best way to have strawberries this weekend is cooked on the BBQ; it never fails to go down well!


  • Strawberries 6-8 per person
  • Cointreau
  • Brown Sugar
  • Cinnamon Sticks (optional)
  • Baking Foil

First cut some foil into individual 6” squares enough for each person next prep 6-8 strawberries for each person; hulling them, and cutting them into bite-sizes. Place the strawberries into the centre of the foil, sprinkle with a little sugar to taste and fold the foil up a little then add a shot of Cointreau to the mix before crimping the foil up at the top like a filo pasty parcel. It’s also good if you add a cinnamon stick to each parcel.

Simply place the parcels on your BBQ after your meal and leave to slowly cook for fifteen to twenty minutes and let all of the juices mix with the alcohol and sugar. Keeps an eye on them they should be just about done when the liquid is boiling. However if you leave them in a little longer the strawberries will just be a little softer.

Take off the BBQ and pour into bowls and serve with clotted cream and cookies, yum!


Kate’s Choice – Stawberries with Balsamic

Simon’s BBQ strawberries may be fancy but my strawberries with balsamic vinegar are simple and so tasty you will love them every time.  


  • Punnet of Strawberries
  • Sugar
  • 1-2 tsp Balsamic Vinegar

In a bowl prepare a punnet of strawberries with a small knife to remove the stalks and centres, and then slice into quarters. Sprinkle a table spoon of sugar over them and then add 1-2 tea spoons of balsamic vinegar. Mix together and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes to get the juices going, then simple serve over meringues with cream or however you like your strawberries.

    BBQ strawberries were amazing, we tried them with Pimms instead of Cointreau, delicious.
