Strawberries, fig leaf vinegar, fresh basil and whipped cream
Add some meringues to this and what a delicious eaton mess you have. If you can get your hands on some fresh figs, use some of those too. Almonds would work really well here too.

2tbsp Belazu Fig Leaf Vinegar
2tbsp caster sugar
Pinch of salt
450ml double cream
50gr shelled and toasted pistachios, chopped
1 small bunch of fresh basil
- Mix the strawberries with the fig leaf vinegar, caster sugar and salt in a bowl and leave to sit for 10 minutes or so to allow the natural juices of the strawberries to be extracted.

- Spread the double cream in a big serving dish, top with the strawberries and all the juices, sprinkle the chopped pistachios and finish with torn fresh basil leaves.
