  • 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 the berries in large pieces but you can slice them into smaller pieces if you wish.
  • 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.
