Wild Strawberries in Liquor
Fragoline di bosco sottospirito
Typical recipe of the Cesena countryside, a place traditionally rich with strawberries. This dish was served to visiting guests, in the afternoon, after some hard work, for example the birth of a calf or of a foal, or maybe after putting shoes on a horse.
Ingredients: 1 kg of wild strawberries, 500 g of sugar, 1 liter of pure alcohol, 4 small vials of strawberry extract, 1/2 liter of water.
Preparation: fill a hermetically sealed jar with strawberries and alcohol to the brim. Close it and let it sit for at least 40 days. Then, boil the water with the sugar for 5-10 minutes. When the water is cold, add the strawberries, the alcohol and the strawberry extract. Stir and put everything into jars.
