Recipe: Marinated Strawberries with Basil

Buenos Aires, Argentina was one of the original countries to appear at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival in 1996. This recipe for marinated strawberries is from their 2006 menu.

1 lb fresh strawberries
3/4 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp lemon rind, finely grated
2 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped

  1. Wash the strawberries and pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. Quarter the strawberries and place them in a large mixing bowl. Set them aside.
  3. To make the syrup, combine the water, sugar and lemon rind in a small saucepan. Dissolve the sugar over low heat, stirring occasionally. Once the sugar is dissolved, increase the heat and boil the syrup for five minutes or until slightly reduced. Set aside to cool.
  4. Pour the cooled syrup over the strawberries and stir in the basil. Serve immediately, or if you like, chill for a couple of hours before serving.
