DIRTY STRAWBERRIES

It’s strawberry season! I know that nowadays you can get strawberries year round, BUT they don’t taste like they do right now.

I am not sure what the origin of this recipe is, but I was introduced to it for the first time when I lived in New Mexico in the late 80’s. I was told it was a southern thing. If you know, please share.

DIRTY STRAWBERRY

I remember that the thought of strawberries dipped in sour cream and then brown sugar was not appealing. Boy was I wrong. This is short and sweet because I really want you to try this if you haven’t. Not only is it an interactive and fun conversation starter at a party, but the response you will get is priceless. The combo of the three textures and flavors in your mouth is simply beautiful. A little tangy, a little juicy, a little warm and fuzzy? Who doesn’t love these ingredients?

HOW:

Fresh Strawberries: Wash and pat dry thoroughly. You may use a fork, skewer or fingers.

TIP: If you skewer them, do it on an angle as strawberries can be a little hollow in the middle and the skewer will not have a firm hold if it is floating on the inside.

Sour Cream: I use whole milk sour cream. You may use light, but I would try the fat version first. You can probably even substitute Greek yogurt, but don’t tell me.

Light Brown Sugar: Dark is ok too, but light may be a bit more delicate.

OTHER IDEAS:

I hear that grapes work too and I think that fresh peaches are a shoe in!

I can’t wait to hear what you think!

    Yum! My Mom used to make this for me, thanks for the reminder.
    I love the idea of substituting Greek yogurt too, a bit less guilt-inducing.

    I am a big fan of fat free sourcream and you still hooked me! Truely an awesome combination. My Grammies Strawberry Rhubarb crumble still takes the Strawberry decadent list though 🙂

    looks yummy. this is also really good with cream cheese and a little splash of OJ whipped together. I mix the brown sugar in with the juice and philly mix but you can dip it in sugar too… thanks.

    I JUST introduced the kids to this, one of my all time favorite desserts from childhood! Thought they would come unglued. We didn’t have any sour cream, but had leftover creme fraiche – what could be bad?
