5 Stars Plus!!! YOWZA!!! I made this exactly except that I made one error which I may continue to keep on doing! I put vanilla ice cream and the strawberries in a desert dish and poured the syrup over that while the syrup was still very warm (stupid move I now know - but we loved what happened!) When the syrup hit the cold ice cream it hardened (like the top of a creme brulee) while it remained syrupy on the strawberries. I cannot tell you how we liked the result. I am going to make it again tonite the proper way but this is a keeper!!! And sooo easy - thanks submitter.

This just didn't work for me, The spices were fine but it was kind of watery even tho' I cooked the sugar and water until "syrupy"

What a great idea! It reminded me of the way my mom used to prepare strawberries for us as kids. Just sugar, water, and let the sliced strawberries soak for a few hours in the fridge. Making it into a "syrup" with cinnamon and nutmeg definitely gives it a kick. I served it in a wine glass over 2 scoops of ice cream topped with a dollop of whipped cream, garnished with a mint leaf, and there you have a rich, fancy dessert! It'll please the whole family! Yummy!

A nice and easy way to dress up strawberries. I used Splenda instead of sugar and the consistency was weird so I wouldn't recommend the substitution. Pairs nicely with light Cool Whip for a low calorie desssert!

I made a trial run of this today, hoping I could put this in my Christmas baskets this year as pancake syrup. I did subtract two tbsp. water and added two tbsp. lemon juice. To make this a little thinner, I ran the berries through the blender, coarsely chopping them. I like it, just the way I hoped it would turn out though it is a little sweet. I might cut back the sugar just a bit. I'd like to see if I can't try this with cranberries, too.

This is wonderful!!! I made it exactly as above, only increased the syrup to one and a half batches (we like extra syrup)! I also added a small package of blueberries to the strawberries. Put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on pound cake and topped it with the berries. This is a keeper.

Very easy and tasty! I made this to serve with/over cream cheese-filled crepes. I can't wait to see what else it's good on :)

This is a ggreat recipe. Simple, savory and sweet. But, I saved on the sugar calories by using 1/4 cup sugar to one pound of strawberries 1/4 teaspoon of stavia instead. Thanks for this great idea.
