When I was younger, we used to grow strawberries, and our favourite dessert was freshly picked ripe strawberries folded into whipping cream, just a touch, sprinkled with caster (superfine) sugar and chilled for an hour or so. We would then crush them with a fork before eating them. When I go home in the summer, I still love to eat them like this. Another family favourite is this stylish strawberry dessert, which I often call Strawberry Soup, although it isn’t really a soup. I just call it that because the strawberries are served with lots of wonderful fresh fruit juice, scented with orange blossom. You could use the orange zest to make candied orange and sprinkle it over the top of the soup before serving.
