Anyhoo, since Father's Day is tomorrow and it IS strawberry season, I thought you might want a little extra something special to prepare for Dad or hubby or yourself/ME. This is a dish best prepared the day before serving so without further ado....the not-so-secret recipe:
5 1/2 cups ripe strawberries
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup Port wine
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cardamom
Strawberries and/or mint for garnishing
(dollop of sour cream for garnish if desired as well)
Puree strawberries, sour cream, and sugar together. Mix wine and water in a saucepan, add pureed mixture. Heat on low and allow to simmer for 1 or 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add the cardamom and vanilla. It's not crucial, but it is best if you allow it to chill overnight so all of the flavors can mingle and set. When ready to serve, pour into individual bowls and garnish with the extra strawberries, mint, and/or a dollop of sour cream. Yummy.
So I hope you all enjoy Father's Day with your loved ones and let me know what you think if you get a chance to try this recipe.
