I just found a new sauce for fruit salads, especially red/soft fruits. The ingredients sound odd but taste delicious. The whole recipe is:

Serves 2

225g (8oz) fresh strawberries
150ml (1/4 pint) fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons caster sugar (I don't bother with any)
1 star anise
1 teaspoon caraway seeds (although it tastes good without them)
To Sevre
broken meringues - or whole ones if you prefer
Low fat natural youghurt

Hull strawberries and place them in a bowl

Place OJ, sugar, star anise, caraway seeds in a small ban. Bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour oer strawberries and allow to cool for at least 1 hour, up to 8 hours.

Divide strawberries between 2 flasses and serve with meringues and low fat yoghurt.

Sounds delicious! I've never seen the meringues for sale here, I might try my hand at making them from scratch. Regardless, I love the idea of simmering the OJ with the star anise and caraway seeds for the syrup, I'm going to try that!
