Strawberry season!

Going to a market (in Polish targ or bazar) is a real pleasure now. Fruits and vegetables smell wonderfully, the weather is perfect. What I especially recommend you to buy are white and green asparagus (szparagi), young cabbage (kapusta) and of course strawberries (truskawki)! There are so many ways of eating strawberries… I love them with white cheese for breakfast, with pasta or rice for lunch, sauté or in a cake or sorbet for dessert…

Even if you speak no Polish, asking for truskawki should be very easy.
„Proszę kilo / pół kilo / dwa kilo” – that’s it!

Today a very easy recipe for a summer lunch! Great for children and adults. Don’t worry about the exact amounts.

We need:

any kind of pasta or rice you like – makaron albo ryż dowolny

sour or sweet cream you like (can be 10% of fat, can be 36%), milk or yoghurt also fine – śmietana / mleko / jogurt

strawberries – truskawki

sugar, if you need (vanilla sugar – a Northeastern European specialty is also perfect) – cukier (cukier wanilinowy)

Boil pasta and mash strawberries with sugar (or not if you count calories). You can use a blender, a potato masher or just a fork. Once again product placement:

Then mix it and smacznego :))

What are your recipes with strawberries? Would you like to have my perfect fruit cake recipe?

  1. My partner is Polish so we are fortunate enough to experience two cultures, she is also a big tennis fan and as Wimbledon is on and we have strawberries in the garden, she's been going native recently!
