Strawberry Soup

Strawberry Soup is a wonderful first course for breakfast or brunch in the summer. It’s best with fresh strawberries, but frozen strawberries can be thawed and used when fresh berries are not available. The flavor of creme fraiche (see below) is wonderful with strawberry soup, but it’s dense and sinks to the bottom! A dollop of whipped cream and a sprig of mint makes a pretty presentation.

using liqueur adds depth and richness

Don’t leave out the peach schnapps! The original recipe calls for schnapps or apple juice, but we much prefer it with the schnapps. Using liqueur in cooking adds depth and richness. You may not be able to put your finger on what’s missing–the liqueur makes it so much better! Of course, if you simply can’t include the alcohol in the recipe, use the apple juice.
