Tips

I love to serve the strawberry soup with home-made mint, basil or rosemary sorbet.
As a variation blend 8 leaves of peppermint with the strawberries.


Directions

Peel and cut the ginger intro little pieces.
Put the water to boil, add the ginger and the zests of the limes.
Cook on low fire until the water thickens for approximately 25 minutes.
Remove the stems and centers of the strawberries. Cut into halves or quarters depending on the size of the strawberries.
Strain and place in blender along with the strawberries. Blend until smooth. Add more sugar if necessary until dersired sweetness. Blend until dissolved.
Keep chilled until ready to serve.
Decorate with mint leaves.
