BERRIES IN MY KITCHEN
From the first of June strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries are eagerly anticipated and treasured in Denmark. They are grown in the wild, in gardens, on farms, and in pots. My inspiration for these classical summer desserts came from a short walk to the local supermarket, since I don’t have a garden or space on my small balcony. In Denmark strawberries slowly sun-ripen during the long summer days, and enjoy a unique character and sweetness. They are absolutely delicious !!!
Makes 4 small glasses
500 gr fresh strawberries
Juice of one orange
1 spoon of honey or caster sugar
Mint leaves to decorate
1-In a medium size bowl put strawberries, orange juice and honey and blend with an electric whisk. This can also be done in the liquidiser.
2-Pour into small glasses and decorate with mint leaves
TIP – When blending the strawberries do not over do it, try to leave some small pieces. This gives the texture of a proper Gazpacho.
