Strawberries and cream

One of my favourite things to do in June is eat buckets of strawberries with sweet cream, ideally watching Wimbledon. Heaven. This is barely a recipe but it’s so good I’m posting it anyway. British strawberries are everywhere at the moment and they are so deliciousย it’s worth waiting once a year for this treat.

Strawberries and cream

  • punnet of strawberries, washed and sliced if preferable
  • 1 tub of double cream
  • caster sugar
  • packet of good quality shortbread biscuits

Whip the double cream, slowly adding sugar once it’s started to thicken. Keep tasting so you add the amount of sugar you like. Once the cream is thick serve a big dollop of it with the strawberries and a shortbread biscuit (or two!) per person.
