Ballymaloe Strawberry Muesli
The new seasons Irish strawberries have just become available. This is a huge favourite with all our family and friends –its such a good recipe to know about because its made in minutes and so good.We vary the fruit through the seasons – strawberries, raspberries,loganberries, blueberries and grated Cox’s Orange Pippin apples or Ergemont Russet in the Autumn. The nutrients are more bio available to the body if the oats are soaked overnight. 6 tablespoons rolled oatmeal
Serves 6 - 8
8 tablespoons water
250g (8oz) fresh strawberries
2-4 teaspoons honey
Soak the oatmeal in the water for 8-10 minutes or better still on the previous evening. Meanwhile, mash the strawberries roughly with a fork and mix with the oatmeal. Sweeten to taste with honey, a couple of teaspoons are usually enough but it depends on how sweet the strawberries are.
Serve with pouring cream and soft brown sugar.
