Strawberries and cream
Sunday 24 May 2009
A little Eton mess, but without the meringue. If you prefer a chewier texture, simply crumble a little meringue through the mixture before you serve.
2 tbsp icing sugar
A small pinch of sea salt
The juice of one orange
2 punnets of strawberries, hulled and chopped into 4 pieces
150ml/5fl oz double cream
Place the icing sugar in a bowl. Add the salt and pour in the orange juice, stirring as you go.
Add the chopped strawberries, stir once or twice more and place in the fridge to macerate for half an hour.
Just before you are ready to serve, whip the cream until just thick enough to fall from the spoon and fold through the strawberries.
Serve at once or the strawberries will bleed into the cream, which although it still tastes good, looks less pretty.
