No, Daisy is not a new, up and coming celeb chef. It’s Daisy brand sour cream.
I almost always make a celebrity recipe here on the blog but when I spotted this recipe in an advertisement in the jan/feb issue of Food Network magazine, I wanted to try it and then of course, share it with you.
We are serious strawberry lovers around here so it doesn’t take much persuading to try a strawberry recipe. And with strawberry season just around the corner here in Arkansas, it was great timing.
While we wait for the Arkansas berries, I decided to try this recipe out on some Florida ones we found at Wal-Mart. Florida’s annual Strawberry Festival is coming up soon, I have family there and wish we could go. Sad face.
Since I can never leave well enough alone, and have to change up nearly every single recipe I try, I added a little more orange juice and a little orange zest. It was a subtle flavor. It seemed to “brighten” up the sour cream. If you don’t have an orange, you could also try lemon juice instead.
This dip is really delicious, every berry tasted like a mini-cheesecake. A sweet burst of flavor in each bite.You can make them ahead and refrigerate, but the brown sugar does gets melty on top of the sour cream. As you can see in the photos, that happens fast anyway. I made these then immediately took the photos.
In just 5 or 10 minutes, you have a wholesome, delicious treat for breakfast, snack or even dessert.
- ¾ cup Sour Cream
- 2 teaspoons orange or lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon orange zest (if desired)
- ½ cup loosely packed brown sugar
- 36 fresh medium strawberries (about 2 quarts)
- Combine the sour cream, orange juice and orange zest in small bowl; mix well. Place the brown sugar in another small bowl.
- Dip the strawberries in the sour cream mixture and then roll in the brown sugar. *Try serving in small bowls and letting each guest dip their own berries.
You can find the original recipe online, here.
If you are watching your calories, you could try this with low cal sour cream or even Greek yogurt.
Does finding this recipe in a Food Network magazine ad count as a celebrity chef recipe? Probably not, but I hope you enjoy it anyway!
In case you are wondering, this is not a sponsored post. I just really liked the recipe and wanted to give credit where due.
