with Strawberry Sauce
What could be simpler?
- 2 pints* fresh strawberries
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
Wash and hull the strawberries. Select 1 cup of the least attractive berries and puree them in a food processor with the sugar.
Put whole berries into serving dishes and spoon puree on top.
(If berries are not real ripe, you may put a couple of packets of equal on the whole berries and mix well before spooning the puree.)
* One pint of fresh strawberries equals 1 basket, or about
3 1/4 cups whole berries, or 2 1/4 cups sliced berries, or 1 2/3
cups pureed berries, or about 12 very large
stemmed berries, or about 36 smaller berries.
Storing and Preparing Strawberries:
Before using or storing, sort through the strawberries and separate the
soft ones from the firm, fully ripe berries. Discard any mushy or
Store them in a colander in the refrigerator. This allows the cold air
to circulate around them. Do not cover them.
Remove caps from strawberries only after washing. Prepare strawberries
for serving by rinsing with caps still attached under a gentle spray of
cool water; pat dry with a paper towel. (Don't remove the caps before
washing; the caps keep the water from breaking down the texture and
flavor inside the berries.). Wash the berries just before you plan to
use them. Use as soon as possible; strawberries ripen no further once
To keep strawberries from absorbing large quantities of water when
washing them, place in a salad spinner to remove excess water.
