I’ve already told you how much I enjoy fresh strawberries, so I won’t go there again, but when we got more strawberries this week from our CSA, along with some mint, I was thrilled! I knew immediately that I wanted to do something with them together.
We had a few slices of pound cake left over from our dinner last week (I froze most of it for use later) and I decided to make some Minty Strawberry Sauce to top that and of course it was just perfect! If you’ve never had mint and strawberries together before try it…It really is fabulous!
What You’ll Need:
1 pint of strawberries
1/4 cup of mint leaves, chopped
1/4 cup of organic cane sugar
In a glass bowl or container chop strawberries to desired size:
Stir in mint leaves and sugar until mixed:
Cover and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours or until “sauce” forms. Perfect as an ice cream topping for vanilla or vanilla white chocolate ice cream or as a topping on angel food cake or pound cake.
Notes: This goes together quickly, is easy, yet provides a bit of bang in terms of wow factor. This mixture also can be used to make an ice cream similar to this one.
