    Serves: 2 

    • 1 cup (250ml) water
    • 2 whole cinnamon quills, broken in half and lightly bruised
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon rosewater
    • 250g strawberries, at room temperature washed and hulled

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Combine water, cinnamon, sugar and rosewater in a saucepan and bring to boil.
    2. Add strawberries, a few at a time, lifting out with a slotted spoon after about 5 seconds. Continue the process until strawberries have been braised and set aside in a bowl.
    3. Continue to simmer the syrup until it is reduced by more than half, and the syrup thickens to coat the back of a spoon.
    4. Remove from heat and pour through a strainer into a small jug and allow to cool.
    5. Serve the strawberries with a creamy vanilla ice-cream and the syrup spooned over them.
