Wondering what to do with the powdered pearl sugar bits found at the bottom of the bag? Savor every delightful bit of your Belgian pearl sugar with this simple recipe. (If you find you don’t have enough Belgian pearl sugar powder, you can always crush a few pearls to make your own.)
- 3 cups fresh, ripe strawberries
- 1 cup Belgian pearl sugar powder and bits
Wash strawberries and remove stems. Cut up strawberries. Those of us in the Waffle Pantry kitchen like our berries on the larger side but you can slice them into smaller pieces if you like.
Combine strawberries and pearl sugar powder into a pan and allow the mixture to sit for 3 hours. Cook at medium heat for about 25-30 minutes or until the mixture is at your desired texture and consistency.
Enjoy this sweet and slightly tart concoction on top of a freshly baked waffle for your next brunch. The stewed strawberries can be served warm or slightly chilled. It’s a wonderful addition to cheesecake, sweet loaves and other baked goods. For freshness, store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
The recipe works wonderfully with other berries as well, so mix and match with whichever berries your heart desires. Enjoy!
