IBS Sano - Low FODMAP Recipes - Logo Background Gluten Free and Low FODMAP Recipe - Strawberries with lime & long pepper syrup


2 limes

100g golden caster sugar

5 medium-sized 'long' peppercorns, one crushed and rest left whole (or use 2 tsp crushed black peppercorns)

450g ripe strawberries, hulled and halved, or quartered if large


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.

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.
