I don’t know why a punnet of strawberries got stuck in the fridge. But they did.
Perhaps a lockdown takes fun out of a food that is readily associated with sharing – strawberries certainly add to the communal happiness of crowds at Wimbledon tennis, they can cap a perfect summer’s day at a garden party or on a picnic with family and friends – somehow, it might just be a little indulgent to enjoy strawberries on one’s own. So I decided to turn them into a pudding to eat without too much guilt in front of the telly. I made my own langues de chat, a biscuit we used to buy easily in the old days – but now seemingly only available from specialist suppliers.
NB: 1 sachet of gelatine sets 1 pint of liquid (about 500ml). Add 3/4 – 1 sachet depending on how set you like your fool.
A perfect winter warmer – Cassoulet!
