In the Kitchen with Sigona’s featuring Strawberries from Morgan Hill

This recipe is featured on episode I of our “Fresh from the Farm to the Kitchen” video series where Carmelo and Robbie Sigona visit with local strawberry grower Tim Chiala of George Chiala Farms in Morgan Hill, Calif.

Gourmet Strawberries & Cream

Carmelo presents his Gourmet Strawberries & Cream made with localy grown strawberries.

Greek yogurt adds a creamy, near guilt-free element to this dish, which is sweetened with agave and our secret ingredient: balsamic vinegar. Eat it as a snack or for dessert. Serves 4.

Berries:

  • 2 baskets fresh strawberries, stemmed and halved
  • 1/2 TBL agave nectar

Sauce:

  • 3/4 of 1 basket of fresh strawberries, strawberries, stemmed
  • 1/2 TBL agave
  • 1/2 tsp aged balsamic

Sweetened Greek Yogurt:

  • 1 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt, we recommend Fage
  • 1 TBL agave nectar

Garnish:

  • 4 mint sprigs

For the berries: Stir together, set aside

For the sauce: Add all ingredients to a blender, bullet blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.

For the sweetened yogurt: Mix together the yogurt and agave. Put the mix in the freezer for about 10 minutes to firm it up (optional)

Plating: Swirl a spoonful of the sauce on a plate. Place a scoop of the yogurt on top of the sauce and top with the sliced berries. Garnish with a mint sprig.
