French Food Friday...strawberries with Cointreau
As usual, we have an abundance of strawberries at our house, hence this week's recipe uses strawberries and this is a recipe that I used last night.....
- 500g strawberries, hulled halved or quartered, depending on size
- 3 tbsp Cointreau
- zest 1 orange
- 4 tbsp icing sugar
- mint leaves, roughly torn, to serve
- Tip the strawberries into a large bowl. Splash over the Cointreau, add the orange zest and sift in the icing sugar, then give everything a really good mix. Cover, then leave for 1 hr or more for the juices to become syrupy and the strawberries to soak up some of the alcohol.
- To serve, scatter the mint leaves over the strawberries and give them one more good stir, then spoon into individual glass dishes.
Bon appetit à tous, Leeann x
