by mid-june i've nearly reached the point where turning on the oven is completely out of the question and ice cream moves it's way front and center. remember when we discussed breaking the dessert habit? yeah, me either. what the heck was i supposed to do with all those strawberries?
ciao bella pint size gelato is a favorite in our house, plus the smaller size keeps portions down. hey, if there's a quart of ice cream in the fridge it will likely get eaten. quality over quantity.
with three ingredients you can hardly call it a recipe, but here goes...
2 cups strawberries, thinly sliced
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1-2 tbsp sugar (depends on the sweetness of your berries)
1. whisk together orange juice and sugar in a bowl and pour over strawberries.
makes a perfect topping for meringues and angel food cake as well. enjoy!
