Really, what could be simpler than sliced fresh strawberries with a sprinkle of sugar? That's exactly what the "Fresh Strawberry Topping" (page 501) consists of, nothing more, nothing less. After a trip to the Farmer's Market, I was ready to go with fresh strawberries, ripe, juicy and sweet. Adding the sugar allows juices to form after setting aside for a while, but you can accomplish the same thing by crushing the berries slightly (however, you won't end up with intact slices). I used this on top of my morning breakfast of raw oats, Grapenuts, and ground flax seed, with a splash of soymilk, and it was just as the recipe promised - ambrosial!
