Strawberry Cardamom Sauce

Strawberry Cardamom Sauce

Cannot quite fathom that the holidays are almost upon us. Seems like 2020 is lasting 24 months, 18 at a minimum. Although, it has not been entirely terrible, for example I made this Strawberry Cardamom Sauce for a friend’s birthday. But what is up with the Charlie Brown Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center? Damn, damn, damn!

Reason managed to out pace the crass and craven crowd but only by a smidgen and thanks to Black women, per usual. The leader of the latter will not concede, the media says “shut him up.” No real news is being reported. I think everyone has been rode hard and put away wet. If you’re not going to work, give us a few weeks of peace and a gift Mr. President, by slipping away quietly into the dark of night. All I want for Christmas is youuuu….to go away baby, permanently, prayerfully oooh baby, to another country, far, far away baby.

The Strawberry Cardamom Sauce played well with the Cheesecake Elegante I drizzled it over. Unlike our current leader who does not play well with anyone at all, ever. He won’t share with President Elect Joe Biden. Many of us have followed his lead in a macabre dance with the devil. Once the fires are extinguished, I hope we will have learned a lesson about interdependence. Some of us, unfortunately, always have to learn things the hard way.

Let us form new traditions in 2020. Use the sauce, which must be made with organic strawberries, in multiple manners on pound cake, ice cream and even in lieu of cranberry sauce on turkey, goose, duck or my Rack of Lamb.

Strawberry Cardamom Sauce can be used in place of Cranberry Sauce on fowl, beef, lamb or desserts.

A simple yet superb medley of organic strawberries and cardamom, can be used in lieu of cranberry sauce alongside turkey, duck, brie and baguettes, as well as countless dessert options.
