Slice strawberries into 1/4-inch slices and place in a mixing bowl.
In a saucepan combine the sugar, orange juice, and orange zest and bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir with a wooden spoon to dissolve sugar.
Once syrup is at a rolling boil, remove from the heat and pour over the sliced strawberries. Let sit while cooking waffles.
Serve over waffles.
