Recipe by Daniel Myers

This is an interesting recipe- somewhere between jelly and pudding. It reminds me of some grape pudding I tried many years back.

I have left out the final step of the recipe which involves alkanet, since thereare some health concerns about it. The vinegar is used to help extract the color of the alkanet (dark red) and help infuseit into the fat.


2 cups strawberries
1 cup red wine
1 cup almond milk
2 Tbsp. amidon
1/4 cup currants
pinch saffron
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. cinnamon


Clean and quarter strawberries. Simmer them in red wine until soft. Force berries and wine through a strainer to remove seeds and pulp. Add almond milk, currants, and spices, and return to low boil. Add in amidon (corn starch can be used as a substitute) and stir until thick. Remove from heat, garnishwith pomegranite seeds, and serve warm.
