 Ingredients List

  • 1 pt Strawberries
  • 1 1x1/2-inch piece peeled
  • -ginger root; finely chopped
  • 1 ts Grated lime peel
  • 1/2 tb Sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 lg Pineapple; cut into
  • -bite-size chunks (1 cup)


1. Set aside 4-6 strawberries, depending on the size. In food processor or
blender, process the remaining strawberries, ginger root, lime peel, and
sugar till smooth.

2. Quarter the reserved strawberries. In a serving bowl, combine the
quartered strawberries with the pineapple chunks. Pour the strawberry sauce
over the mixture, and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or
overnight, stirring occasionally. Makes 4 servings, each serving: about 90

sugar grams.


1. I tasted the strawberry sauce and then adjusted the amount of lime and
ginger accordingly, using more than called for in the recipe

2. I added chopped kiwis to the pineapple.

3. The original recipe called for 2 tablespoons sugar, which seemed like
way too much to me, so I started with 1/2 tablespoon, which was fine.

4. Before adding the strawberry sauce, I poured 2 tablespoons of vodka and
2 tablespoons of Cassis (black currant liqueur) over the fruit.
