So last night I posted my Old School Cheesecake Pie at 9:00 during the middle of the Superbowl. Honestly, I hit publish instead of save! In my defense, the half time show was over and my attention span was stretched to the limit. Anyway, here’s the sweet little recipe for the Easy Fresh Blackberry Sauce that I served with that cheesecake!
Spring always makes me think of Rhubarb first and Strawberry second. And Artichokes, but that’s another story! And I love me some Rhubarb Sauce, sweet or savory, but I love me some Strawberry Rhubarb Compote even more. And in case you’re wondering, because not everyone knows, “compote” just means fruit cooked or preserved in a sugary syrup, and it just, well, sounds “fancier” than Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce.
Did your Mom ever toss together that old-fashioned brown sugar syrup when there wasn’t any maple syrup in the house? Mine sure did, and so did I, for my kids. This Pear Brown Sugar Caramel Syrup is a lot like that only taken to the next level.
Our Strawberry season is just ending up Nord, here, in Minnesota. So before it’s too late, I’ve been taking advantage and using strawberries, and making a lot of recipes! One is this Fresh Strawberry Compote. It’s just a simple, little sauce but it’s infused with big fresh strawberry flavor.
If there is ever a show stopper of a dessert that’s really just a big, easy “cheat” it’s got to be Pavlova. And this White Balsamic Strawberry Pavlova is a perfect ending for a summer party.
