Summer strawberry surprises.


I’m trying to make a selection of strawberry desserts: a tart using a sweet version of the hot water pastry; a cream tea with a super-fresh strawberry “jam”; a classic French compote with Cointreau; the orange and Cointreau ice-cream.  Slightly changing recipes we know well gives a new twist Oranges with strawberries are one of my favourite combinations.

At our next free, online baking session at 1030 on Monday 12 June, I’ll make the scones for the cream tea plus the compote and explain the sweet pastry for the tart and the “jam” that keeps for a year in the freezer (I confess that I found some that must have been ten years old and it was still delicious and I’m living to tell the tale!)
