I was hoping someone would pick strawberries! We have had wonderful ones from the farmers' markets the past two weeks.

Yumm! Ours are about done, here. I picked 16 pounds a few weeks ago and made lots of stuff!

This liqueuer is good, and was originally posted by a CF member, but I don't recall whom, and I don't think he/she posts anymore. So I will share this with you! I have 2 quarts of it aging as we speak....

Scrumptious Strawberry Liqueur

3 c fresh strawberries, stemmed & washed 1-1/2 c sugar 2 c 100 proof vodka 1 c water 1/2 tsp lemon zest 1 tsp orange zest 1 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice

Crush strawberries and sugar together in bowl. Let stand for about one hour. Transfer to clean 2-qt container and add vodka, water, lemon zest, orange zest, and lemon juice. Cover and let stand in a cool, dark place for 2 days, shaking frequently.

Use a fine-mesh strainer to strain out solids. Discard. Transfer liqueur to clean container, cover, and let stand for 1 week. Rack or filter into final container. Age for at least 1 month more before serving.

Yield: approx. 1 qt.


This salad is always a hit. It's from the St. Paul Hotel which is a 5 star hotel in downtown St. Paul that I worked for back in 1993.
  

Strawberry Spinach Salad with Poppyseed Dressing
Source: St. Paul Hotel

Dressing:
  

1 c sugar
1/4 c poppyseeds
1/2 c Sesame seeds
1 c salad oil
1/2 c raspberry vinegar
dash paprika
1 T worcestershire sauce
1 T minced onion

Combine sugar and vinegar and whisk until sugar is dissolved. Add remaining ingredients and chill well. Serve over baby spinach leaves and sliced strawberries. Garnish with brie cheese wedges.
  

(You may want to half this recipe, as it makes a lot of dressing...)
