Roasted Strawberries

For the second week of BM, i chose the theme : Dips/Spread/Chutneys. Originally i planned a strawberry and cream cheese dip, an easy one, no work at all. While getting the ingredients from the fridge, i noticed the cream cheese was very less 😞. I rememberd Usha’s post of Roasted Strawberries, thank god for my memory, i made these. They saucy berries, are tasting so good, i couldn’t stop eating these saucy berries and licking the juice clean off the spoon. 
Usha has clearly mentioned in her post, that there was too much liquid after roasting it, so i increased the temperature a bit and roasted them for 45 minutes. Even then there was liquid, but it was bit thick and saucy. Loving it every bit, can’t wait to top it on my toasts tomorrow.
