    Using a slotted spoon, place strawberries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper; keep juice for later. Transfer to the preheated oven and reduce heat to 250ºF roast for 50 minutes.

    Remove from the heat and transfer the strawberries and their juice to the bowl of a food processor including the one earlier with the sugar; process until smooth, about 15 seconds.
