Strawberry Bavarois




The strawberry version is as delicious as the mango one. But I did whip it wrong and so you can see the huge bubble craters...oops! If you are using a hand blender, as I did, remember to keep it low and not near the surface...that tends to froth up big bubbles and you get a moon surface dessert! My oops moment...but it tasted absolutely divine. Instead of a quote I thought I'd share some strawberry facts.


Did you know.......... 

Strawberries are the only fruit that wear their seeds on the outside? A berry could have up to 200 seeds!

Strawberries aren't true berries like blueberries or even grapes. To be uber technical, botanists consider each seed to be its own separate fruit. Whoa! meta.

Strawberries are members of the rose family.

Belgium has a museum dedicated to strawberries. In the gift shop here you can buy everything from strawberry jams to strawberry beer.

Native Americans ate strawberries long before European settlers arrived.

Sex and strawberries? In France, where they're believed to be an aphrodisiac, strawberries are served to newlyweds at traditional wedding breakfasts in the form of a creamy sweet soup.

Strawberries are believed to reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers. They are low in calories, high in Vitamin C, B6, K, fibre, folic acid, potassium and amino acids.

Strawberries contain high levels of nitrate. This has been shown to increase blood and oxygen flow to the muscles. Research suggests that people who load up on strawberries before exercising have greater endurance and burn more calories.

To store fresh strawberries, wash them and cut off the stems. However, if you plan to keep them in the refrigerator for a few days, wait until before you eat them to clean them. Rinsing speeds up spoiling.

Green strawberries can be pickled or made into a chutney. Over-ripe ones can be made into a jam.
