I saw the first local strawberries at the grocery store the other day. There would have been a time when I would have immediately thought of making a strawberry pie or shortcake. Although I still make rich desserts like this for the big holidays, I tend to keep it simpler and lighter these days. White Wine-Marinated Strawberries exemplifies this new style.
When strawberries are peak and good, it’s nice to give them all the attention. If you’d like to serve a little something extra, consider Melting Moments with Lime which complement the berries well.

- ¾ cup granulated sugar
