This “Creamy Brown Sugared Strawberries” recipe is from my best friend’s grandfather years and years ago when I ate dinner at her house as a fourth grader. Her family brought it out to the dinner table after we ate, and I was terrified to try it. The grandpa convinced me to take a spoonful, and I’ll never forget how much I loved that very first bite.
You see…it’s not what you think it is.
The secret is the cream. You won’t believe it, but it’s not whipped cream, sweet cream, or even heavy cream. Any guesses?
If you guessed sour cream, you are correct. I know, I know. Trust me, I was extremely skeptical especially as a 9 year old. I saw the sour cream container, and thought, “Is this a joke?”
This is no joke and I definitely wouldn’t post this recipe At the Picket Fence if I didn’t think it was worthy.
The reason it works, is that the brown sugar balances it all out. As a matter of fact, it reminds me of cheese cake when I eat it. Sweet, sour, sweet, sour. Sweet, sour. This is a must try.
The recipe includes 3 simple ingredients…fresh strawberries, light brown sugar, and light sour cream. You won’t find a lot of measuring in this recipe because it’s not meant to be so precise. It’s meant to be Summer lazy, but still out of this world delicious.
I hope you try it.
See you next time! ~ Julie
