This flavourful berry compote brings old strawberries back to life! I found myself with some punnets of picked over strawberries, having given mini Jones the best ones, thinking I would eat the rest – but then my week got so busy I didn’t get around to it. There were berries that were slightly under ripe, and another punnet that didn’t taste of anything at all. Gently heating them with a little orange makes the flavour pop, and makes a delicious breakfast or pudding out of something that may otherwise be thrown in the bin.

Hull the strawberries, quartering the larger ones, halving medium ones.

Place them in a small saucepan with the orange juice, then heat gently over a medium heat. Bring to a simmer, and cook for 5 minutes.
