I saw this recipe in a very old cook book. It sounded great so I had to share it!!!!
- Rinse berries and put in pot, add sugar and cover with cold water.
- Remove strawberries to a warm dish.
- Cut toast into halfs (diagonally.).
- Dip in pot liquor to soften, put toast on plate.
- Cover with strawberries and sirup from pot.
I made this recipe twice. The first time, I made it exactly as directed,but it didn't turn out right. There seems to be a step missing in the directions(why place the berries into a pot and then later remove them to a "warm" plate if you are not heating them at some point?) Simply pouring the cold water over the sugared berries doesn't really produce a syrup - it is essentially just sugar water that you dip the toast into. The second time I made the recipe, I added a step - heating the berries, sugar, and water for a few minutes until the water turned red. This time the recipe worked out nicely - the toast came out a lovely pink color from the brief dip in the pot syrup and there was a nice strawberry flavor. I would probably add a little cornstarch next time to produce a thicker syrup. I am sorry - this recipe has great potential.
