A very simple and
elegant way to serve strawberries. The taste will remind you of cheesecake.
Everyone that I serve this very easy-to-make strawberry dish seems to go "wild" over it.
I'm not kidding you! Who would of thought that just strawberries,
sour cream, and brown sugar would be so good together! This is a
"must try" during your local strawberry season.

strawberries, washed and dried*
1 cup sour cream or
1 cup firmly-packed brown sugar
Naturally the best strawberries are the ones you pick yourself from your
local strawberry fields or purchase from your local produce stands and/or
Farmers' markets. In the stores, always choose locally grown
strawberries during the harvesting season (they are sweeter and juicier than
those that are bred for shipment). When purchasing berries from the grocery
store, shop with your nose. Always pick the plumpest and most fragrant
berries. They should be firm, bright, and fresh looking with no mold or
bruises, and fresh green caps (stems). The caps should be bright green,
fresh looking, and fully attached.
Prepare strawberries for serving by rinsing with caps still attached under a gentle spray of
cool water; pat dry with a paper towel. Wash the berries just before you plan to
use them. Leave the caps (stems) on the strawberries to use as handles
Arrange strawberries in a large bowl or arrange on a large platter.
Place sour cream and brown sugar into two separate small bowls.
To serve, let each guest dip
a strawberry into sour cream and then into brown sugar. ENJOY!
