- 200g Granulated Sugar
- Seeds from 1 Vanilla Pod
- 1 shallow tsp Citirc Acid (or juice of half a lemon)
- Hull strawbs and put all ingredients into a saucepan. Use a potato masher too mush up a bit, still leaving some larger pieces of fruit.
- Bring to a boil then simmer for 20-30 mins ish, stirring occasionally until reduced to approx 1/3 of original volume. (It will look glossy and combined, rather than like strawberry soup..) Remove from heat and leave to cool for 15 ins or so, skimming off any scum from surface.
