While halving and hulling thirty-six pounds of strawberries for an extra large batch of Strawberries and Cream Jam, I had several silly ideas. One of which was a B-Grade horror movie in which the tagline read “To Halve and to Hull”, but that’s another blog post. The other was to make strawberry covered chocolate. I wanted to take a very familiar dessert and twist it around. The results were delicious.
Here’s some strawberry jam that is really easy to make and kicks the pants off of any store bought concoction. I added a vanilla bean in this recipe so that I got the “Strawberries and Cream” flavor.
