Spruced up strawberries and cream

With Wimbledon around the corner it seemed apt to blog about British strawbs and cream. This recipe takes the humble strawberry and lifts it to new heights. Most supermarkets keep fruit in the fridgeΒ which literally kills the flavour. With the addition of just a few ingredients you can make this berry sing and taste amazing once again.

  • 2 large punnets of strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 handful of fresh mint
  • double cream

First comes the boring job, hull all your strawbs and cut them in half. Then simply whack them in a bowl with the vinegar, before adding lots of chopped mint. Leave to macerate for half an hour at least.

Whip your cream until its thick but not stiff. If you fancied it add some vanilla and a tsp of icing sugar. Then just pray for the British summer to arrive. To be honest this little combo is HEAVEN whatever the weather.
