Strawberry crush is my second recipe for the pre ramadan marathon. I stock my strawberries when in season and use it in variety of recipes. Mostly I prepare this crush as it comes in handy to prepare milkshakes , smoothies, icecream , topping and filling.

As you all know by now that I share iftar with few people and each day I have to give them full iftar meals. So I need as much as super quick fix recipes in hand. Allah and his rasool has blessed me in this pious month. I find myself lucky that I  am able to provide home cooked meals to them.

 Prophet  Mohammed (pubh) says ,”He who gives iftar to another fasting person will earn reward equivalent to a fasting man without detracting from the reward of later.”
Strawberry CrushUsually I make strawberry crush in big quantities. But to simplify things to those who are not comfortable for huge quantity preparation, giving  you  minimum measures for about  half kilo of strawberry. I have added sugar and little bit of water to start up the process.  And cooked  till all the water from strawberries have dried out and we are left with a lumpy thick texture syrup.

I like to give different flavors like cinnamon, saffron in my strawberry crush to elevate the taste. Orange blossom or rose water also gives a good flavor. You need to add these flavoring after removing it from flame . While  for cinnamon add only 1/2 inch  while cooking along with strawberries, sugar and water. And don’t forget to remove the piece of cinnamon stick if  you want mild flavor. The same method has to be followed for saffron adding at the initial stage.

  1. It is indeed a blessing to be able to feed a lot of people during Ramadan, especially when your energy levels can go very low at times. The crush sounds so much like jam... Very nice way of preserving large quantities... I am so much in love with the labels on the bottles... beautiful!
