Strawberries with orange and cinnamon (perfect for Xmas) and Sweet New Zealand

Sweet NZ image
This is the 40th consecutive edition of Sweet New Zealand, and I will be hosting it from this blog.
Last month (October 2014) our host was Lesley from eat, etc. so check out her round up here for some ideas. And I am also entering the first recipe: Strawberries with orange and cinnamon. This is a prelude to the Xmas Season, strawberries are the traditional Xmas fruit in NZ, but being from the Northern Hemisphere I cannot renounce some more traditional and festive winter flavors, like orange and cinnamon. 

Just wash and cut the strawberries (two punnets), add the juice of one orange, a cinnamon stick and one tbsp of sugar. Let the strawberries marinate for a few hours at room temperature, and then a few more hours in the fridge. Serve cold, with cream, or yogurt, or ice cream, or just as they are!
Now it is your turn to enter Sweet New Zealand!
1. This event is open to all bloggers living in New Zealand (even if you’re not a Kiwi), as well as all Kiwi bloggers living and blogging overseas.
2. You can enter anything sweet: cakes, biscuits, slices, desserts, even drinks. You may submit as many entries as you like, including old posts if you want.
3. Your entry must contain the phrase Sweet New Zealand, the Sweet New Zealand badge (choose your own size), a link to the host, and to this post – so if you are submitting an older post remember to update it accordingly.
4. To submit your entry, email me at alessandra (at) clear (dot) net (dot) nz by 28th November 2014 with:
  • name of recipe with the link to the post you’re contributing 
  • a photo from your post (not more than 250 kb if possible)
  • your name, your blog name and a link to your blog

  • A roundup of all the entries (with links and photos) will be published at the beginning of December. Leave me a message below if you have any questions. 
I look forward to your sweet entries!
