The strawberries are so delicious right now.
During the colder months they look like strawberries … but that’s about it!! There’s no taste, no smell, sometimes no juice and usually an outrageous price!
But now, spring is here and the weather has warmed, all the fruits and vegetables are different: abundant, vibrantly colorful, delicious and full of aromas. Strawberries in their simplest form, washed, dried and eaten … yumm!
Lately I’ve been preparing a wonderfully easy, satisfying midday meal with them. I chop some berries up in a bowl, then macerate them using a wooden muddler, (more commonly used to break down mint and sugar in Mojitos!).
Next I add a dolup of Cottage Cheese (I use Lactaid 1%.).
Mix it together …
A drizzle of Reduced Balsamic-Pomegranate Sauce (a delicious reduction which is a staple in my kitchen) …
It’s so good the memory continues to linger on my taste buds long after I’ve finished.
Today I added Blueberries.
I hope the berry season lasts longer this year.
