Fraises Marinees Aux Calvados (Strawberries in Calvados)

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Chef Kate

If you are lucky enough to pick your own berries, pick nice ripe little ones for this so you don't have to slice them--not that sliced strawberries won't look and taste lovely as well.

These were great and so easy. Don't forget to add the "accumulated juices", it's what takes this dish over the top!!
