I used just picked strawberries for this. Yummy! I think the sweetness was perfect, not too overly sweet which I like. I topped these with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. What a great combination! made for ZWT 6.

Very nice dessert! My strawberries weren't as red as they could have been, so mine didn't come out as pretty as the photo, but it still tasted lovely! I used whipped cream to top instead of the liquid cream. Thanks for posting!

I made this for ZWT3. I'm sorry to say that mine didn't get 5 start result. I started with ripe rich red berries but all the color "washed out" in the cooking, sadly the flavor also seemed to fade. I did use Splenda in place of the sugar which I stirred in as I removed it from the heat. It was already color faded so I know that it didn't cause the effect but perhaps the lack of added sugar did? The flavor was nice but not what I was expecting.
