Method

  1. Using a vegetable peeler, pare the zest from 1 lime in long strips. Shave away any white pith from the back of the zest (this can make it bitter), then put the zest in a medium pan. Squeeze both of the limes and add the juice to the pan with 3 tbsp water, the sugar and the crushed and whole peppercorns. Heat gently until the sugar dissolves, boil, then take off the heat.
  2. Spread out the strawberries in a serving dish, then pour over the hot syrup and allow to cool. As this happens, the syrup will become rosy pink. Serve at room temperature with scoops of ice cream.

So easy to make yet so delicious! I made this for a party and everybody was raving about it. It was a lot sweeter than I expected but not sickly.
