Strawberries & Cream

Last week when I was making the Feta Chicken Pasta, I decided it needed something to go with it... I had bough strawberries for freezer jam and had so left over so I was anxious to eat them! I really LOVE strawberries, strawberries and blueberries. Yum. I decided to whip up some whipping cream to go with the strawberries. Of course plain whipping cream is too boring, so I added some stuff to it, and it was pretty good. The next day I had bought more strawberries and decided to make it again, with a few tweaks and it turned out so delicious. It is really pretty easy to make and wonderful to eat... I think I need to go buy strawberries now.


Strawberries & Cream

In a medium bowl, add 2/3 cup whipping cream (I use heavy whipping cream).
Start whipping the cream.
Whip until the cream starts to get fluffy.
The cream will still be a little runny. Add 2-4 Tbsp sugar (you can add more as you make it to taste.)
1/4 cup strawberry jam (this was the freezer jam I had made the day before...)
Add 1 Tbsp lime juice
And 1 Tbsp lemon juice.
Beat until fluffy. There are two ways that I have served this so far... 
First, I mixed the cream and diced strawberries together and sprinkled with finely grated chocolate and a strawberry fourth on top.
The other way was a layered dish. I started with whipping cream, and then strawberry slices.
Repeating the layers.
Cream mixture, strawberries, cream mixture, strawberries...
Ending with the cream mixture on top and a decorative strawberry flower.
Enjoy!

  1. Will you email your recipe for freezer jam to me? I have some strawberries frozen that I need to make jam with.

  2. I just used the recipe on the package of fruit pectin. If you do not want chunky jam you'll want to run your strawberries through the blender first (I did...)

  3. My mom makes strawberry freezer jam - I used to make it with her when I'd be home in the summers - but I don't think she ever put the strawberries through the blender. I'll have to suggest that to her!
