As the state fruit, strawberries are a point of pride for the state of Delaware. Make this soup in the summer with sweet summer strawberries, and add a hint of savory flavor with the addition of balsamic vinegar.
- 10 Cups fresh strawberries, cleaned and hulled
- 1/2 Cup honey
- 1 1/2 Cup water
- 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
- 3 Teaspoons balsamic vinegar
- crème fraiche, for garnish
In a blender or food processor, combine the strawberries with the honey. Blend until smooth. Strain the strawberry and honey mixture through a sieve. Stir in the water and black pepper. Chill for at least two to three hours. Distribute the soup into six bowls evenly. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar on top. Garnish with crème fraiche.
