We have accrued a number of recipes over the years that use Boddington's Berries products. Now, these are not just about which conserve to put underneath the cream on your cream tea (#jamfirst!) or which chutney works best in your sandwiches. We have worked with different chefs who have come up with a range of recipes.
It's always great to hear from you! So, if you have any recipes which you think we should be shouting about, then please contact us and we will add them to the website. Remember to tag us in all your bakes using the hashtag #boddingtonsbakes so we can see what you have been up to!
If you are lucky enough to purchase some of our incredible, mouth-watering, fresh strawberries during the summer months, the following recipes will give you an idea on how you could use them...
* Slice strawberries, very lightly dusted in muscovado sugar, then gently fried in unsalted butter. Serve over ice cream, as a filling for
pancakes or as a topping for waffles. * Strawberries blended with banana and ice-cold milk. * Chopped strawberries added to your salad - sweet or savoury. * Chopped strawberries marinated in Cointreau for 30 minutes, then served with either ice cream or cream. * We all know about strawberries and cream, but have you tried cream and strawberries? Whip the double cream until it peaks, then gently fold in strawberries, top with a sprinkle of brown sugar and add a sprig of mint for a fabulous dessert. * And for complete indulgence; try floating a strawberry or two in your next glass of champagne or prosecco!
Of course, you can eat strawberries, but did you know that they are great for the skin? Here are some more unusual applications for strawberries...
Strawberry Sunburn Care
Are you someone that loves to lie in the sun all day and forgot to put sun cream on? Well for mild sunburn, take a few fresh strawberries and rub them over the affected area. Leave the juice on for at least half an hour, then wash it off with warm water. This will reduce the soreness of the burn.
Strawberry Milk lotion
With their high vitamin C content, strawberries are ideal for softening and nourishing the skin. The pH acidity of the strawberry is almost exactly the same as that of the skin itself. So, extract the juice from some fresh strawberries and add a little warmed milk. Apply to your face and leave overnight, or at least for a few hours. Then risen off with rose water for a beautiful complexion!
