Candied Strawberries
Recipe type: Dessert, Strawberry
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1 quart strawberries
Beautiful fresh strawberries dipped in a candy coating.
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • few drops red food coloring
  1. Grease a piece of baking paper and place on a tray/baking sheet or a baking sheet with silpat on it.
  2. Wash the strawberries, and put on a clean towel to dry off.
  3. Put toothpicks in the strawberries.
  4. Add the water to a saucepan. Add the corn syrup. Then add the sugar. Stir carefully so sugar does not get on the sides of the pan. Put pan over medium heat and cook without stirring until the mixture reaches 300 degrees. (okay I stirred it once at about 250 degrees)
  5. Dip the strawberries in the hot syrup rolling them around so that it gets entirely coating with the syrup. Place on prepared pan to harden. Refrigerate until serving time.
