Two weeks ago, I bought a 2 pound container of strawberries while I was at Costco. Say what you will about Costco (I love the place) but their produce is excellent. Yesterday, I decided I should probably use what was left of those berries and all were still good except one. There are many stores where that would not be the case.
I poked around the internet and found this on An Italian In My Kitchen.
- 12 oz (3/4 lb or 3 cups) of strawberries
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup of whipping cream
I did this as the recipe said and ran all but 3 pieces of the strawberries through my blender. Next time, I’ll just chop them up fairly small – little more texture.
Mix in the sugar.
Whip the whipped cream until peaks form and stay up. Mix in all of the strawberry/sugar puree EXCEPT half a cup.
Pour a little of the strawberry puree from the half cup reserved in the bottoms of your serving dishes. Add in the whipped cream mixture. Top with the rest of the puree and pretty the whole thing up with a lovely bright red strawberry piece. Put in the fridge until time to serve.
So good. Bright, fresh and light. Best of all, 10 minutes to make. You could absolutely use about half the sugar used here and it would still taste amazing.
