French Food Friday....Strawberries in Cointreau


I made this recipe last night with the last strawberries of the season.
Unfortunately it will be a while before we are eating French strawberries again.



Preparation Time
5 minutes

Ingredients (serves 2)
250g (1 punnet) strawberries, washed, hulled, halved
2 tbs Cointreau liqueur
60g good-quality dark chocolate
3 tbs double thick cream

Method
Place the strawberries and Cointreau in a medium bowl and stir until well combined. Cover and place in the fridge for 1-2 hours to macerate.

Run a vegetable peeler to peel along the long edge of the block of chocolate to make chocolate curls. Set aside until serving.

To serve, spoon the strawberry mixture into serving bowls. Top with cream and chocolate curls.


Bon appetit a tous.......Leeann x
