yesterday the better half brought home a 1/2 flat of perfectly ripe strawberries still warm from the field which i washed, cored and set to macerate in a simple syrup using blended and strained strawberries as the liquid. and that was it. sugar, strawberries one hour from the plant; yet what i ended up with i'd proudly serve to any one of you. (kind of impressed myself, actually.) i'm on a less is more, finest ingredients kick-my food resolution for this year- and it's paying off BIG. any of you have favorite simple recipes, the type where the sum ends up much greater than the parts???? i want to hear about them!
