A super-easy preserve that adds a shocking color while also adding an amazing flavor to your pantry. One of the thrills of DIY (to me) is the ability to make relatively uncommon yet awesome ingredients. This is such an example.
Dried strawberries are easy to make and just heavenly to eat. And strawberry season is in full swing. (Well, not in Minnesota. My strawberry plants are still sleeping under six inches of snow.) Take advantage while berries are fresh and inexpensive.
This preparation is extremely simple, and it’s a unique cure for the common marmalade to preserve orange flavor. With a dusting of richness from toasted nuts, a spike of floral Szechuan peppercorns and chile’s one-two punch.
