Tillamook ice cream is one of our favorites (Well really Tillamook anything, but especially ice cream! Did you know they've been making it since 1947? I feel like I've missed out since I just discovered it a couple of years ago!) so when their delicious ice cream is paired with fresh, organic berries from FarmboxSF, it’s sure to be a winner.
I received both strawberries and blackberries from FarmboxSF, but I have to be honest. They didn’t all make it from my office (where I had them delivered). Fresh northern California blackberries are the taste of my childhood, so once I started eating them (I had to quality check them, you know) there was just no stopping me.
I love how easy FarmboxSF makes it to get local, organic produce brought right to my door… it showed up well-packaged and fresh and was just waiting to decorate the amazing ice cream we got from Tillamook.
I chose to make the strawberries into a simple sauce topping for our ice cream; I love how it dripped and filled every nook and cranny of my scoops, making the perfect end-of-summer berry filled treat! Fresh & Simple Strawberry Sauce
- 2 pints strawberries, hulled and sliced
- 1/2 c. sugar (or more to taste)
- Juice from ½ a lemon
- Glug of triple sec (that’s a scientific measurement, BTW)
Place strawberries into saucepan, turn heat to medium.
Sprinkle with ½ C. sugar, stir
Cook down until liquid
Add lemon juice and triple sec
Taste, add sugar as desired
Let cool and use to top anything that would be improved by some strawberry deliciousness. (So, ANYTHING)
Store in airtight container, will keep in fridge for a couple of weeks (Not that it will last that long!)
