Karl’s Orange Infused Sugared Strawberries

When I was a child, my mother Claudia would make sugared strawberries to top our waffles with—but only if it was strawberry season, when they were cheap. She would slice the strawberries and sprinkle a fair amount of sugar over them—as much as a quarter of a cup. Over time, the sugar would draw out the strawberry juices and make a fresh berry syrup to spoon over your waffle. Being diabetic, I have reduced the amount of sugar and, of course, I used my signature orange infused sugar.

Karl’s Orange Infused Sugared Strawberries


1½ cups fresh strawberries (about 15 berries)
1+ tsp. Karl’s Orange Infused Sugar


1. Rinse, stem, and slice the berries.

2. Put them in a small mixing bowl and sprinkle the sugar over them.

3. Toss the berries to coat them with the sugar.

Tip: Re-toss the slices frequently over 15-30 minutes, to hasten the drawing out of the juices.

4. Transfer the strawberries to a serving bowl and sprinkle a pinch more of the sugar over them.

5. Serve cold with waffles or pancakes.
