Few fruit flavours combine so well as those of strawberries and raspberries. This is one of the most delicious ways of serving strawberries.

Ingredients

  • 450 g/1 lb fresh strawberries

    Method

    Wash and hull the strawberries leaving them whole. Place in a serving dish and chill while preparing the sauce.

    Place the raspberries in a saucepan. Add half the sugar and heat very gently for about 5 minutes, crushing the fruit a little to make the juice run. When the fruit is soft, rub through a sieve to make a purée and discard the pips. Add the remaining sugar and the strained lemon juice. Pour over the strawberries and toss to coat the fruit well. Serve chilled.
