Strawberries and Elderflower with Mint
One of our favourite ways to eat strawberries and good way to perk up less than perfect berries.
900g (2lb) ripe strawberries
2-3 tablespoons elderflower cordial
freshly squeezed lemon juice of 1/2– 1 lemon
2-3 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, torn or shredded
Cut the strawberries into quarters or slice into lengthwise. Drizzle with elderflower cordial and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Scatter with torn mint leaves, toss gently, taste, adjust with a little more sugar or freshly squeezed lemon juice if necessary. Serve alone or with softly whipped cream.
