Directions to make a strawberry puree
Wash quickly, hull and wipe strawberries with a cloth. Cut the strawberries in half.
Put the strawberries in a saucepan. Sprinkle with a few drops of lemon and mix. The lemon juice will prevent the fruit puree from turning brown if stored for several days.
Put a lid on the pan and cook on low heat (power 3/10) for 5 minutes.
Crush the fruit in the pan with a fork or wooden spoon. If the fruits do not bring enough juice and they stick in the pan, add a few drops of water.
Put the lid on the pan and continue cooking for 5 minutes.
After 5 + 5 minutes of cooking, remove the saucepan from the heat. Crush the fruits coarsely with a fork (or in a blender to obtain a fine puree).
Let it cool.
Just before serving, taste the puree. If the puree is not sweet enough to your taste, add sweetener or sugar and mix.
This puree can be preserved for 1 week in the refrigerator in a closed container so several portions can be prepared at the same time.
