Macerating just means leaving the fruit to marinate, and the flavours used here, apple, mint and honey, complement the sweet and tangy flavours of strawberries perfectly. If you leave the strawberries marinating for a good hour, the tanginess of the apple, the sweetness of the honey and the minty fragrance will infuse to create a mouth-watering combination.

  1. Hull the strawberries using a teaspoon, then slice them in half length-ways and place them in a roomy bowl.
  2. In a small jug, pour the apple juice and the runny honey and mix well. Tear the mint leaves into small pieces, and mix them into the liquid.
  3. Pour the marinade over the strawberries and mix well but gently, making sure that you do not damage them. Clingfilm the bowl and set aside, covered with cling film, somewhere cool, but not the fridge, for one hour.
  4. After an hour, remove the cling film, and give the strawberries another mix, to ensure they are all covered with the marinade. Serve into individual bowls.
