Description

A delightful dessert with bold flavors from a classic liqueur

Ingredients

2 lb
Strawberries (up to 3 pounds, Optional: banana, orange segments, tart apples, cherries, pound cake, mango, papaya, pineapple)
16 oz
Chocolate (bittersweet, 64 percent)
16 oz
Cream (heavy)
1 oz
Butter (unsalted, whole)
1  
Liqueur (Amaretto, Grand Marnier, or Port)
1  
Food injector

Instructions

  1. Wash fruits.
  2. Chop chocolate into pieces.
  3. Heat cream to just below a simmer.
  4. Pour cream over chocolate and stir with a wooden spoon to melt and blend. It’s best to withhold 10% of both ingredients in order to make adjustments for viscosity and to temper the chocolate. Fold in bits of the butter after all the chocolate is melted.
  5. Keep in a warm place for service. This can be made days in advance and held in the refrigerator. I always have a container of ganache on hand for either fondue or to make truffles
  6. Using an injector, fill the cavity of the strawberries with your favorite liqueur.
  7. Holding the stem of the berry, dip into the chocolate and enjoy. Best to serve this after the kitchen is cleaned because you won’t feel like working after a dose of these.
  8. Life is good.
