DIRECTIONS

  • Remove strawberry stems, and cut strawberries into thick slices.
  • In a heavy saucepan, over medium heat, melt sugar until light brown and caramelized.
  • Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  • Stir in orange and lemon juice (combined juices should measure 1 cup).
  • Raise heat to medium-high and stir until all particles are dissolved.
  • Add strawberries and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 15 minutes, or until liquid is reduced by half, sprinkling pepper over berries while simmering; do not stir.
  • Let cool at room temperature and chill for 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours.
  • To serve, spoon 1/4 of the sauce onto 4 flat plates. Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top slightly to the side and a dollop of whipped cream slightly to the other side and sift confectioner's sugar over plate to dust.
  • *Note: the sauce may be frozen. For a more exotic flavor use 1/2 cup of orange juice plus 1/4 cup of orange-flavored liqueur.
