Strawberries and Cream Week

Strawberries and Cream Week

Wimbledon kicked off with a bang yesterday so in celebration of this momentous occasion, we are bringing you all things Strawberries and Cream!

Nothing says summer like strawberries and cream so we’ve found a cracking recipe from Jamie Oliver which you’ll love!

4 handfuls of wild and normal strawberries
1 Tbsp of caster sugar
1 vanilla pod, scored lengthways and seeds scraped out
1 splash of sherry vinegar
1 pot of crème fraiche
Small fresh mint leaves
Zest of one orange

Pick out the nicest strawberries and set aside. Put the rest in a bowl and add the sugar, half the vanilla seeds and the vinegar. Squash together with the back of a fork and leave to macerate for 10–15 minutes.

Stir the rest of the vanilla seeds into the crème fraîche. To serve, spoon a little vanilla cream in the centre of each bowl, make a well in the middle and spoon in some mushed strawberries. Halve some of the reserved strawberries and sprinkle the lot over the vanilla cream. Scatter over the mint leaves and orange zest then serve.
