fRENCH food Friday...coulis de Fraises

recipe from here, photo by moi

Bonjour mes belles,

It has been a busy week and we are gearing up for another very busy week next week.

Hence the lack of posts this week. Some-one left the freezer door open and did not realise which resulted in two bags of thawing out strawberries and raspberries.

I would like to say that the "some-one" was French Boyfriend but I am afarid it was yours truly that last accessed the freezer....oops and I have well and truly learnt my lesson.

Amazing what a few minutes in the blender does and magically a fabulous fruit coulis appears which is great with icecream, yoghurt of fromage blanc which is a favourite dessert of mine.

Recipe appears in English and then the original version follows below.

Preparation time: 5minutes
Cooking time: 0 minutes

250g strawberries
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
50 gms sugar
100 ml water (I did not add water as I like mine nice & thick)

Place lemon juice , sugar and strawberries in the blender. Pulse until smooth. Add water if required and pulse again.

The coulis is now ready to use. Works well with  vanilla icecream. I like to serve mine in a glass with vanilla yoghurt on top. The French even add a bit of museli on top or crumble some biscuits.
