Strawberries and Cream

Its time for the Wimbledon finals and that means that the stores have great sales on strawberries. Nice plump and juicy California strawberries. I picked them up from stop and shop for about two bucks a quart. I’ll be using a full quart of berries here.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 quart strawberries
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon creme de fraise (strawberry liqueur)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

In a large bowl start whisking the cream until soft peaks start to form. Fold in the creme de fraise and sugar. Do not over whip the cream or you’ll start making butter! Just whip until peaks start to form and dollop out into serving cups. I use martini glasses for this, and top the freshly washed strawberries with the cream, and a sprig of mint garnish.
