Sweet Strawberries

May 16, 2012

Strawberries have arrived! They have finally burst into the stands of the Greenmarket, gracing us with their sweet and delicate perfume. Now that they're finally here, we aren't holding back -- ice cream and sorbet, preserves and compotes, clouds of ricotta and discs of meringue. Though there's nothing better than a simple, fresh strawberry, no garnish necessary.

When strawberries are not up to par, I turn them into coulis - freezes well, tastes like spring. The little bit of lemon and sugar make up for the diluted flavor caused by spring rain. Photo and recipe at
