1. Wash the strawberries and cut off the tops and cut into bite-size pieces. Lightly drain and place in a container. Add 1 tablespoon sugar and mix lightly. (Do not smash the strawberries. Let sit for at least 1 hour. Do not refrigerate.)
2. After one hour, when the sugar is incorporated and the color is vivid, they're ready. Sprinkle with lemon juice.

4. This will turn not-so-sweet strawberries into delicious ones.

Story Behind this Recipe

I really enjoyed the strawberry parfait I had at a restaurant so I asked if there was any secret. They told me that the strawberries shouldn't be kept in the refrigerator and to add some sugar and let sit for a while.
