Strawberry Concentrate

Hello my lovelies!

Let’s get back to 3 recipes per week after a few busy days…

Today I will introduce my strawberry concentrate!!

It is still time to enjoy what summer can provide to us, and by this, I mean super sweet strawberries!! This concentrate will be used as a sauce or in several other recipes such as:

– my lime and strawberry cheesecake

– cream cheese or plain yoghurt

– red fruit tiramisu

– with a rhubarb compote

And many others…

You can prepare this recipe with frozen strawberries if you don’t have any fresh ones or set aside in your freezer portions of strawberry concentrate ready for future use.

One last remark before moving on to the recipe: using gelatine sheets isn’t mandatory. It will depend on how you intend to use your strawberry concentrate.

Are you ready now? The recipe, Chef!

    bonjour Emma, cette recette me donne bien envie mais pourquoi mettre la feuille de gélatine, qu’est ce qu’elle apporte ? une texture plus solide ? avec cette feuille conserve t on l’aspect coulis ?
    Merci pour la recette une fois de plus, et de votre aide !!!

      Bonjour Priscille !
      La feuille de gélatine est là pour une texture plus compacte. En particulier si vous voulez recouvrir un cheesecake par exemple ou un entremet.
      Mais ce n’est pas indispensable pour une autre utilisation (comme un coulis par exemple). Essayez cette recette, c’est très frais !
      Belle journée !!

        Merci infiniment Emma, je suis en train de le faire, mais effectivement je ne vais pas mettre de gélatine, car on va le prendre sur une glace à la vanille, avec qq meringues…
        Bonne cuisine !! à bientôt
