Cook's Notes

    This is a great dessert recipe. Easy too! Before making this, I read Karen72's review and agreed, what's wrong with a few strawberry chunks? In the end, it was too much strawberry juice/pulp that was added to my cream mixture. It turned out fine, but I have a feeling the strawberry half would have been a bit more fluffy and delicate had I ran it through a sieve and discarded the pulp. Again, it was still delicious, but I'm going to try it without the excess strawberry material next time.

    This recipe is delicious, however I see no reason to put the pureed strawberries through a sieve. I started doing that and it became tedious, I deleted that step. what is wrong with a few strawberry chunks? It adds flavor and interest. Be sure to read the recipe all the way through and have all the pans, bowls, figured out. I neglected to do that and had too many pans, bowls dirty. Also, be sure to put your strawberry puree into a large bowl because will adding the whipped cream to it.
