Let’s say you could not resist and bought a bunch of strawberries. Even though you still had other fruits at home.
This strawberry soup is a way to use up the leftover fruits and to enjoy those luscious strawberries. The other fruits are neatly cut-up and placed at the bottom of the goblet; the strawberries have been macerating in some sugar or honey and have produced a lot of juice: Throw them in a blender and get a nice smooth soupy strawberry mixture. Pour it on top of the other fruits, top with some cotton candy if you wish (or nothing).
INGREDIENTS: 6 to 8 servings
- 4 cups of strawberries, hulled and cut-up
- 1 cup of sugar or honey
- 1 lemon or lime, juiced
- 1 orange
- 6 cherries
- 1 banana (or apple)
- 1 teaspoon of orange blossom water or rose water (optional)
- Place the strawberries in a large bowl; cover with sugar and let them macerate in the sugar for several hours. Purée in a blender and add the lemon or lime juice and the flavoring if using.
- Cut up the remaining fruits and place at the bottom of each goblet. Pour the strawberry soup on top and refrigerate until serving time. Decorate with cotton candy or nothing!
