Compared to other months, sales of strawberries have peaked! Currently, we buy around 3 -5 punnets of strawberries each week because they are so sweet now :D Did I mention they're also cheaper? Well, that's the only perk in the upcoming Spring. Definitely not looking forward to the heat!
usual mix I dip the thick sandwich slices in, I tried to dipping it in raw creme brulee mix instead. The result? There wasn't really a difference except that the cream flavour was more prominent (even though I did a 50% cream and milk ratio).
But never mind that, it was still a good snack to the point where my sister wanted a slice o_o Now that's RARE!
The recipe for this week is the strawberry compote that went with the french toast. Nothing too hard and doesn't take too long to make a small batch and add it to your favourite sweet breakfast or brunch!
makes 2 small servings (about 125 ml)
- 1/2 punnet strawberries, hulls removed and quartered
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- Place all the ingredients into a small pot.
- Stir constantly for 8 - 10 minutes on low heat.
- When the strawberries are soft, squash them roughly with a wooden spoon.
When the liquids are slightly thick, the compote is ready.
Cool and refrigerate for later use.
