To every pint of picked strawberries allow 1/3 pint of cream, 2 ounces of finely-pounded sugar.
Pick the stalks from the fruit, place it on a glass dish, sprinkle over it pounded sugar, and slightly stir the strawberries, that they may all be equally sweetened; pour the cream over the top, and serve. Devonshire cream, when it can be obtained, is exceedingly delicious for this dish; and, if very thick indeed, may be diluted with a little thin cream or milk.
Sufficient for 2 persons.
Seasonable in June and July.
