These roasted balsamic strawberries came with a whole load of drama.

I had this plan. Wake up at 5 am, make four recipes, style, photograph and edit them and pack everything away by 7.30 am before the kiddoes come downstairs for breakfast. And it all went smoothly and I was pretty chuffed to be on target at 6.30 am.

Then I set up the roasted strawberries, ran upstairs and reached into the cupboard and NO camera. This dufus food blogger had left her camera back in London.

Cue a whole load of stress, loads of early morning panic phone calls, a bit of driving (and inevitable getting lost due to the panic), swimming lesson, a children’s birthday party etc, before I managed to borrow a camera and finish taking the photographs at 4 pm. Only 9 hours after I expected.

Afterwards I sat down and ate every single balsamic roasted strawberry you see in that picture. Straight out of the jar in very big mouthfuls. They were worth every single bit of stress.

Oven Roasted Strawberries Tips

  • Try and make sure all the berries are the same size so they cook evenly.
  • If your strawberries are small you would only need to halve them.
  • If you use a large baking tray with plenty of space then your strawberries will dry out more.
