How Do the French Eat Strawberries – Video

Leyla By Leyla on May 5, 2014

Today, I’m going to show you the best way to eat strawberries – it’s our friends Jeannine and Pierre who showed us, and my parents loved it! They thought you’d like it as well.

It’s even better if you can get the best of the best “la mara des bois” ou “la gariguette”!!!

Strawberries And Champagne Recipe

You need “un grand bol transparent”, it doesn’t really need to be transparent but it’s much prettier that way.

You’ll also need “du sucre en poudre”, and we like to add “un peu de sirop de coquelicot (poppy syrup)” but it may be difficult to find outside of France…

And of course, “une ou deux bouteilles de champagne” !!!

I eat mostly the strawberries, but my Mom prefers the juice, I wonder why….
