Strawberries Arnaud Recipe
Louisiana-grown strawberries are sweet, plump and succulent. When they are in season it is a shame to order anything else. Strawberries Arnaud celebrates them in a simple and refreshing recipe designed to crown any meal.
- 1 cup ruby port
- 1 cup red burgundy-style wine
- ½ orange, sliced
- 1 whole clove
- 1 cinnamon stick
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 3 cups vanilla ice cream
- 3 cups sliced fresh Louisiana strawberries
- Lightly sweetened whipped cream, for garnish
- Six whole, perfect strawberries with their stems, for garnish
- Sprigs of fresh mint for garnish
In a medium saucepan, combine the port, wine, orange slices, clove, cinnamon and sugar and simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool for at least 30 minutes. Strain the sauce, cover then refrigerate until serving (the sauce will keep for up to two weeks).
