The woodland strawberry or metsämansikka in Finnish, is like nature’s candy, growing on roadsides and on the sides of ditches. This little berry has a bit of nostalgia. We filled and decorated our cake with them when we got engaged on St. John’s thirteen years ago. The perfect start for the day. Muesli, nuts, 1/2 banana sliced, 1/2 nektarine or peach diced (or fresh berries). Milk or yogurt to serve.
Recipe for the strawberry quark filling:
Mix equal parts of whipped cream and quark. If quark is hard to find, use a low-fat sour dairy product such as Turkish or Greek yogurt. Fold in sliced fresh strawberries and add sugar to taste.
