This is a recipe Sr Carmen used to serve in a French Restaurant.
A nice, simple and tasty dish. Preparation time is only about 10 minutes, even if you are doing 4 serves.


(per serve)

  1. Rinse, then "hull" the strawberries (means taking the green stalks/leaves off them).
  2. Cut them into bite sized pieces (often into quarters will do).
  3. Combine the Cointreau and sugar, making a kind of syrup (add more sugar if you wish).
  4. Put the strawberries into the Cointreau syrup and stir them around gently to cover them.
  5. Scoop the ice-cream into the plate.
  6. Artistically arrange the strawberries in the bowl on top and around the ice-cream. (Or just toss them on if you're that way inclined)
  7. Drizzle the syrup (which is pinkish now) over and around the ice-cream and strawberries.
  8. Serve and enjoy.
