fresh strawberries with creme fraiche and brown sugar recipe
(serves 2; can be multiplied)
1 pint fresh local strawberries, as ripe as you can get them
1/2 cup creme fraiche (or sour cream or whole milk Greek yogurt)
1/4 cup brown sugar
Wash the berries but do not hull them; pat them dry. On a platter, place the berries, a small bowl of creme fraiche and a mound of brown sugar. Dip each berry in the creme fraiche and then the brown sugar.
