Strawberries are delicious, I don’t know anyone who would argue with that. I love them just as they are mostly, but sometimes I like to give them a boost in flavour by soaking them in alcohol – it brings out the sweetness and creates a quite delicious result! Oranges and strawberries work well together and when you combine them with a little brandy, lemon juice and a hint of cinnamon they work even better.
INGREDIENTS: (serves 2-3)
1 punnet fresh strawberries
2 large oranges (peeled and segmented)
½ lemon (juice of)
2 tablespoons brandy
½ tablespoon sugar
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Slice the strawberries and combine with the orange segments. Squeeze over the lemon juice then sprinkle over the brandy, sugar and cinnamon. Stir well to combine then leave for 1 hour in the fridge for the flavours to fully develop.
Serve on its own or over vanilla ice cream.
