Strawberry Semifreddo

This is a really easy way to serve strawberries and cream if you have a glut of ripe strawberries. It takes about half an hour to prepare but is easily done in three parts – cook the strawberry sauces beforehand, the first sauce needs to cool down anyway. This dessert keeps well frozen and only needs to be taken out to the freezer before you serve the main course. Take out of tin or box, remove wrapping and place on serving dish. Take the pouring sauce out earlier. I found this recipe on anitalianinmykitchen.com and amended it slightly. Enjoy!

I am a Scot living in England. When my grand-daughter who lives in France started college she asked for some of our family recipes. My other grandchildren enjoyed them too so I hope that they will be useful to anybody who likes well tried, easy recipes. Some of my newer recipes do take more than 10 minutes, but none are complicated.
