I bought a quart of the very first strawberries of the season today and I decided to poach some of them since they are already going a little soft. What do you did when life gives you too much fresh fruit? Why you poach it in booze, my friends!
I poached half the strawberries and the rest of some non-local organic cherries in St. Germain’s elderflower liquor, vanilla, cardamom and a simple syrup of local honey and water until they were soft. We will eat them still slightly warm tonight after dinner. I will also be serving some local Haruki turnips and greens and foraged ramps alongside the mister’s honey glazed chicken and my tofu.
