Halve 300g of fresh strawberries and set aside for now. We kept ours in the fridge right up until we needed them to keep them at their best and this also makes them easy to safely slice and place in a medium sized bowl before we add them to the pan.
Add 4 tbsp of cold water and 2 heaped tbsp of caster sugar to a pan and heat on a medium heat until it boils. It’s important to make sure you continuously stir this to avoid any sugar burning or sticking to the sides before it dissolves.
Add the strawberries to the pan and allow to cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring to prevent them sticking and to help aid the softening process. Don’t overcook these as you don’t want to remove all of the lumps entirely, but you should find these quite quickly soften to resemble a slightly thick coulis texture.
