Strawberries in Sweetened Condensed Milk

Strawberries in Sweetened Condensed Milk


The first of the seasons strawberries are often a bit on the tart side. Normally I would sprinkle a bit of sugar onto the strawberries and macerate them but I recently came across a new way of sweetening them up a bit; by adding a spoonful of sweetened condensed milk. The sweetened condensed milk sweetens the strawberries without overpowering them and it adds a bit of a thick and creamy texture to them which is really nice.
