It's Melbourne Cup Day!
The sun has even managed to make an appearance, although we opted to stay home and play with our dog - water fights and all. I took some time to snap some of our lovely roses, with tiny crystal dew drops.
Playing around in the garden made us a little peckish so I tried to find some ingredients left over from other recipes and struck gold with half a tub of creme fraiche.
ease: 5/5. prep time: 3mins to wash and slice strawberries.
cooking time: 2mins to mix up creme fraiche whilst strawberries macerate.
total: 5mins - perfect for a midday snack.
taste: 3.5/5. I'm not sure what it is, but I much prefer strawberries on their own. I used 180g creme fraiche, 1 tsp vanilla bean paste and 2tbs icing sugar - I did not add Frangelico. I also used just 1 punnet of strawberries. The creme fraiche was lovely, but I feel it overpowers the strawberries.
would I make it again: No.
