Cheers to National Wine Day and National Strawberry Month
Simple sophistication.
Red Wine with Strawberries
4 cups strawberries
2–3 tbsp. sugar
1 bottle red wine a young pinot or beaujolais
Wash, hull, and halve strawberries lengthwise. Sprinkle berries with sugar, mix gently, then set aside to macerate for about 1 hour. Divide berries among four wine glasses, then pour approximately 6 oz. of red wine to cover berries.
Casual chic.
Strawberry Prosecco Soup
Simply…strawberries with Prosecco, tarragon, salt, and 2 tablespoons sugar.
Purée mixture in a blender until smooth, then set aside 1 cup purée. Blend remaining mixture with yogurt and sugar to taste. Serve soup drizzled with reserved purée.
Unexpected elegance.
Strawberries with Port-Wine Dip
1 (750-ml) bottle Tawny Port
1 cup sugar
2 to 3 lb whole medium strawberries, stems left intact and berries rinsed and patted dry.
Bring Port and sugar to a boil in a 2- to 3-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved, and boil, uncovered, until slightly syrupy and reduced to 1 to 1 1/4 cups, about 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes (sauce will thicken as it cools). Transfer to a small bowl and serve with berries for dipping. Port-wine dip can be made 1 day ahead and cooled to room temperature, uncovered, then chilled, covered.
Bring to room temperature before serving.
If it’s on the menu…the Menu Shoppe has it covered.
