Strawberries release their finest flavor when served with raspberry and passion fruit sauce.
350g/12oz/2 cups raspberries, fresh
45ml/ 3 tbsp caster sugar
2 passion fruits
700g/ 1/2lb/4cups small strawberries
8 plain finger biscuits, to serve
When buying strawberries choose fruit that is brightly
colored, firm and unblemished. For the best flavor, serve the
berries at room temperature. The delicate flavor will then be at its most intense.
Place the raspberries and sugar in a saucepan and cook over a low heat, with stirring occasionally, until simmering. Cook gently for 5 minutes, then leave to cool. Halve the passion fruits and scoop out the seeds and juice. Pour the raspberries into a blender or food processor, add the passion fruit pulp and blend for a few seconds.
Rub the fruit sauce through a fine nylon sieve to remove the seeds. Fold the strawberries into the sauce, then spoon into four stemmed glasses. Serve with plain finger biscuits.
