The season when the bright red strawberries lined up in the shop are exciting. If you get a sweet strawberry, why not try it as a fruit sandwich?
It's a difficult image to make beautifully, but it's very easy if you keep the points. This time, in addition to general whipped cream, we will also introduce three different types of cream.
PreparationWash the strawberries, wipe off the water, and set aside the calyx.
You can use whatever bread you like, but if the fruit is large, it is recommended because it will be stable when 6 to 8 slices of bread are cut. If you want to pinch it lightly, use bread for sandwiches.
Various creamsWhipped cream is often used for commercially available fruit sandwiches, but if you want to make it healthy or change the taste, try the following three types.
・ Cream x mascarpone
Simply mix the whipped cream (commercially available whipped cream is OK) and mascarpone at a ratio of about 1: 1 as indicated. Add the cream to the mascarpone little by little and it will mix quickly.
・ Drained yogurt x honey
If you want to make it healthier, we also recommend drained yogurt. Adjust the sweetness by mixing honey with a colander covered with a paper towel or yogurt that has been drained overnight with a coffee filter. Rich and refreshing mouthfeel.
・ Cream cheese + condensed milk
Add condensed milk, which is indispensable for strawberries, to cream cheese that has been returned to room temperature and kneaded softly. It's harder than whipped cream, so it's easy to cut. Honey is OK.
Tips for sandwichingAfter applying plenty of cream to the bread, arrange the strawberries while imagining the cross section when cut. If you leave the edge of the bread unpainted about 5 mm, the cream will not squeeze out when you cut it.
Apply cream to fill the strawberry gap, sandwich it with another piece of bread, lightly press it and wrap it in a wrap. At this time, if you draw a guide on how to cut on the wrap, it will be smooth later. Let it cool in the fridge for at least an hour, if possible, until it tastes good.
How to cut it cleanly?Now it's time to cut! Warm a knife or bread knife that cuts well with hot water, and cut it at once from the top of the plastic wrap to obtain a beautiful cross section. Wipe off the cream on the blade every time, even if it is troublesome.
Did you do it well? Strawberry sandwiches that are nice to line up for snacks and breakfast. I want to enjoy it many times until the end of the season.
