Areal childhood favorite for me. My original recipe is written in pencil in my dear mother’s handwriting on an old yellowed piece of card. I remember she always made it in a loaf pan.
fresh mint leaves
strawberry liqueur or sweet, thick balsamic vinegar
Dip the mold into boiling hot water for 10 seconds, then turn out onto a platter and slice into six portions. Place each slice on a plate with a few strawberries, a few mint leaves, and a drizzle of strawberry liqueur or sweet balsamic vinegar. If you can leave the dessert to stand for up to 15 minutes before serving, so much the better.
