Comfort Food 4: New York Strawberries

2 10 2006

I have no idea if this is what they’re called, but that’s the name that our friends on Vancouver Island used when I first tried these delicious strawberries there a few years ago.  They are SO simple to make and SO delicious, and are a delightfully decadent dessert!

What you need:

  • Fresh whole strawberries (leave the hull/leaves on – you’ll need this to pick up the strawberry)
  • Dark brown sugar (the type that’s quite moist)
  • Either: creamy Greek-style yoghurt (my preference), sour cream, or real, thick cream

What you do:

  1. Put some brown sugar and yoghurt into separate small bowls and give a bowl to each guest, along with a bowl or plate of whole strawberries.
  2. Pick up a strawberry by its stalk/leaves, dip it into the yoghurt, then dip it into the sugar.
  3. Tip into your mouth and ENJOY the taste of the sweet and tart and fruit all mixed  in together!
  4. Repeat as often as you want!
