Scrumptious Strawberries Flossies ultimate snack! Over sweets, chocolate and crisps any day. I have to actual portion control because she could eat a whole punnet to herself. We visit Roundstone farm in Sussex, its a great day out and I love the fact that Florence sees where the fruit comes from-I have to keep an eye on her, she likes to eat as she goes round! The only way I can describe the way Florence eats a bowl of strawberries is 'inhaling' them, she barely stops to take a breath! I don't mind though because they are so good for her. My cousin Maisie (Cake maker extraordionaire) made Florence these amazing cupcakes with Cream and strawberries on top-Simple and delicious!
Here are some great Strawberry recipes...
Strawberry and Blueberry Spectacular For a stunning looking dessert, simply mix fresh strawberries with ripe fresh blueberries and serve in a large glass bowl to show off the great colours. For extra pizzazz serve fruit in tall glasses and pour over lemonade (for kids) or champagne (for adults) just before serving.
Strawberry Mascarpone Wash and hull 2 punnets of strawberries. Mix together 175g mascarpone flavoured with a little honey or icing sugar, lemon juice and vanilla essence. Add 1/4 cup grated chocolate. Divide strawberries into 4 glass bowls and top with mascarpone sprinkled with chopped pistachio.
Chocolate Strawberries Melt 125g and 30g Copha (vegetable shortening) in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Wash 1 punnet of strawberries and pat dry with paper towel. Hold each strawberry by the stem and carefully dip 2/3 of the strawberry into chocolate. Place on a sheet of non-stick baking paper or foil and refrigerate until set.
