Strawberry Parfait

Ingredients to make Strawberry Parfait

  • Strawberries – 1 box/ 1 cup sliced
  • Icing sugar / powdered sugar – 1 to 2 tbsp
  • lime juice, freshly squeezed – from ¼ to ½ lime
  • Orange squash – 1 to 2 tbsp OR 2 to 3 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Cornflour – 1 tsp (if adding powdered sugar)
  • butter – 1 to 2 tsp
  • For flambé (very very optional) – 1 tbsp grand mariner

How to make Strawberry Parfait

  1. Wash and remove stalks. Slice them.
  2. In a bowl put sliced strawberries, sugar, lime juice, orange juice/squash. Mix and set aside for half hour. They will let out juices.
  3. In a saucepan heat butter, add in the soaked strawberries along with its juices, cornflour if adding and cook for 1 minute till semi soft.
  4. Remove from heat. May immediately pour into parfait or serving glasses, top with ice cream and serve immediately.
  5. Or may cool the strawberry compote and chill. Then at serving time, pour into parfait glasses, top with ice cream and serve immediately.
  6. For flambé – If topping strawberries compote with a flambé, at serving time, pour a tbsp grand mariner into a big spoon/ steel ladle and warm it on the burner till it catches fire.Pour immediately over the strawberries and serve immediately

My Tip:

Icing sugar has some cornflour already mixed into it. So adding cornflour again is very optional. But required if adding powdered sugar so that the sauce thickens very slightly and coats the fruits.
