Candied Strawberries Recipe
Serves 15 (or more if you can dip them fast enough)
Total time: 25 minutes
Rinse and carefully dry strawberries. Place a colander upside down on a baking sheet or line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan, stir together sugar, water and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring a few times only until sugar dissolves. As mixture heats, insert a thin wooden skewer partway through each strawberry. When mixture reaches 300° on a candy thermometer (after about 15 minutes), remove pan from heat and quickly dip strawberries in syrup, letting excess drip back into pan (the thinner the coating, the better).
Place skewers strawberry side up in colander holes (taking care not to let hot sugar drip on you) or on prepared baking sheet. Serve immediately.
