Strawberry Coulis

Last week I recieved my fresh provisions at Gdansk, Poland. The quality of the provision stores that we recieved was excellent but  unfortunately some boxes fall down to the ground while transfering to the deck. Most of them are fresh fruits and vegetables. Sadly, a full box of strawberries was one of them.

Strawberries are quite vulnerable so extra care is needed, although some are still good for serving on our fresh fruit basket. But for the remaining strawberries that are too soggy, don’t throw it. Instead  we can make a Strawberry Coulis out of it.

Coulis is a french term for a thick sauce made out of pureed and strained vegetables anf fruits.

Strawberry Coulis is just perfect to top your favorite desserts and it is so easy to make!
