In the Middle Ages, during the Age of Discovery, strawberries made their first appearance in Europe. From faraway Chile, a French officer sent them to his emperor. The plump berries' wonderful flavor and perfume captured the monarch's attention. Since then, strawberries have become known as a royal berry. Use the French Frédélies' recipe, which calls for substituting a large serving of strawberries for dinner, if you wish to have a healthy sleep cycle and attractive skin. Strawberries can be used in a plethora of meals, including casseroles, pancakes, mousses, and more. But today, we would like to to encourage you to cook the most delicate and aromatic strawberry soup, which first was made by the legendary French butler.

Method

  • Let's make strawberry juice. To do this, wash and peel the strawberries from their tails and cut them into quarters. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Put them in a bowl, cover with clingfilm and put in a pan with boiling water for 1.5 hours. Don't forget to refill with water from time to time. Pour into a sieve lined with gauze and leave to drain in a bowl until all the liquid has drained out. This will take several hours.

  • To make the soup, wash, peel and cut the strawberries into quarters. Sprinkle with sugar. Put in a bowl and add the strawberry juice, if you have made it. Leave to infuse for 2 hours.

  • Meanwhile, bring the red wine to a boil and light it with a match to burn off the alcohol. Add the citrus zest and juice. Cook until it has doubled in volume. Drain through a sieve and cool.

  • Beat the strawberries and juices in a blender with the red wine. Add a little black pepper and a few drops of orange blossom water to taste. Drizzle with olive oil and serve.

Tips

  • When buying strawberries, make sure they have a uniform, bright red-pink color and should not have any wrinkles or bumps on them. Strawberries should be moderately firm. Excessive hardness or softness may be a sign of immaturity or, therefore, internal rot.There should be no signs of disease or pests on the product. The fruit itself should be regular rounded, oval, or elongated, depending on the variety. 

Bon Appetit!
