Blending a rich creaminess with tart and sweet flavors, Strawberries with Sour Cream and Brown Sugar is perfect for breakfast or dessert.
It was one of those times where I wonder if I’m old. Or a bad mother. Because, when I explained too my daughter that I’d be serving our strawberries with sour cream and brown sugar, she looked at me like I was from Mars. “We’re out of cream” I explained. This didn’t help.
Of course, my mother didn’t introduce this delightful combo to her kids either. We were well versed in “strawberries and cream,” as a result of my grandparents’ Danish birthplace. But the only other option was plain.
It was on a college dance trip, as a competitive Scottish Highland dancer, that I finally had my first taste. For one of the competitions, we stayed with a friend of the instructor. When she explained what our dessert would be my eyes grew wide. Count me in!
Today’s exchange came about because, in the Covid era, there is no quick run to the store for an item or two. No cream, no half and half, no problem.
Rich and creamy, tart and sweet, the flavors in Strawberries with Sour Cream and Brown Sugar blend perfectly. So, to remind mothers and grandmothers to introduce the youth in their lives, I had to share today.
I also put out some cheeses that I’d had shipped from LaClare Family Creamery (did you know artisan cheesemakers are hurting now?) and some remnants of bread. Our breakfast was classic bohemian. And perfect.
So here it is. Not even a recipe, really. But not to be missed.
- 1 quart strawberries, cleaned and cut
- 1/2 cup sour cream or half and half
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
Divide berries between 4 bowls
Top with sour cream and brown sugar (see note)
Rather than topping the berries, you can set the sour cream and sugar in serving dishes and let people top their own.
