Strawberries

Mummy bought 3 packs of strawberries from CH and they were all sssssssss.... sour! They were so sour that I refused to eat them. When Koo-koo bought them earlier from the same place, they were large, juicy and very sweet.

So what did mummy do with these 3 packs of sour strawberries? 

For the first pack, she made a small bowl of chocolate fondue for dipping...

Strawberries with homemade chocolate fondue (made from Australian milk and dark chocolate bars) 


Pure indulgence!

*dunk, dunk* Can't wait to taste it!

Mmmmm... good til the very last bit. I scraped and licked the bowl clean! I was clearly more in love with the chocolate fondue than the strawberries

For the 2nd pack, we had it with vanilla ice-cream...

Sweet and sour delight!

The 3rd and last pack was chucked aside in the fridge for many days... until the strawberries became more reddened, ripened and weren't so sour anymore. They were edible so no more sugary accompaniments this time...

  8. I also jsut started loving strawberries. And the kiddos also love them. I normally get the Korean ones from Jaya Grocer. But the price keeps on fluctuating. My only worry abt eating these are the pesticides that are used on them.
    That is why i try to cut down the frequency of eating em.
