500 gr strawberries
0 to 40 gr sugar
A dash of lemon

Cook 2/3 of strawberries with sugar and lemon. Infuse with basil. Before serving, add the rest of strawberries, raw and diced.
Start by rinsing strawberries. Remove stems.
Weigh 2/3rd of the amount of strawberries, cut them in two or four according to the size and cook them for about ten minutes with a little bit sugar and lemon juice.
When stewed, remove from heat and add the basil or mint leaves. Pour into a container and let cool down.
Dice the remaining strawberries and set aside. Just before serving, add them to the compote. You may choose to leave or remove the basil leaves, up to you.
