Marinated Strawberry with Whipped Cream

I am surprised I haven't posted a strawberry recipe here this season. As it is indeed strawberry season here and before they are finished I was like I should post something.
But to be honest I have not been baking for almost a month, unless if you cound the spelt bread I make twice a week.

Last friday while i was in the grocerry shop saw these beautiful plump looking strawberries and I grabed a box and then picked up a box of cream too.
And when i came home I was like what I can i make then suddenly I thought about one of my earliest recipe here and that is something I make every year.

But then this time I thought I will do with different booze.
From one of our earlier trips to Italy I had picked up two bottle of Fragola from Paestum.
Fragola is An infusion and distillate of wild strawberries, infused for over 4 months after harvest. Slightly sweet with enveloping ripe strawberry notes and an unexpected softness on the palate. Delicious served chilled.

This is hubby playing for a Music Festival in Innsbruck.
Performance on saturday 16th June: Landesmuseum Ferdinandeum Innsbruck.

Recipe for the dessert:
400gm Fresh Strawberries.
3 tbsp Contreau Liquor
2 tbsp fresh lime juice.
3 tbsp Castor Sugar.
Wash the strawberries, and slice each of the to four pieces if they are big two if they are small.
Put all the ingridients above and mix everything and allow to marinate in the fridge for 2 hours.

300 ml thick cream.
2 tbsp Powder sugar.
1 1/2 tbsp fragola
Whipp cream firmly with the liquors and the sugar.
Now layer up the dessert in individual glasses.

Add few tbsp marinated strawberried in each glasses, pipe or use spoon cream on top, add again few tbsp of strawberries and on top, cream.
Pour a tbsp of the juice left in the bowl on top of the cream.

Decorate with mintleaves if you have.

Finla, your husband's playing is beautiful! The piece of music is gorgeous. I love stringed instruments and this is so lovely. As is your dessert (but in another way). I love fresh strawberry desserts and paired with cointreau is magnificent. And with whipped cream, heaven.

First of all, I can't believe that the first thing I see on your blog for the first time I enter on it is a strawberries and cream dream, exactly what I was thinking we should make! :)

And second but not least, you must be very proud of your talented husband. Hat's off to him. :)
