3 pints strawberries

Begin by rinsing the strawberries and removing the stems.  Thinly slice the berries and set aside.  In a medium sauce pot, bring the water to a boil and add the sugar.  Add the strawberries.  Stirring frequently, cook the berries until they begin to break down and the liquid reduces about 1 inch.  Stir in the cinnamon and nutmeg.  Add the orange juice and stir through.  Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool.
