|Go to the store|
and buy a scale
Just do it!
The web site states it takes 10 minutes to prepare - I would say 20. Ingredient amounts are listed in metric. You can convert them if you want but I strongly advise you get a kitchen scale. I didn't think I would like using it but I do. Very precise and you don't have to have specific measuring cups. Just grab whatever container is handy and place it on the scale before turning it on. Then measure the desired amount.
|You don't want|
500 grams of Strawberries
125 grams of Red Raspberries
25 cl water
2 cl white balsamic vinegar
4 Cardamom capsules (I had some trouble finding these)
75 grams white granulated sugar (in French this is called "sucre en poudre" i.e. "powdered" - but it is NOT powdered - it is regular sugar
6 pieces Speculoos cookies or biscuits
100 grams honey
I measure all of my ingredients out first. Then wash your berries and lemon. Leave the raspberries whole, but cut the top off the strawberries and cut them in half or quarters if they are large. Put them in a bowl together.
|Don't zest too deep.|
Just until the white starts to show
Get out two sauce pans. In one put the sugar, water and two of the cardamom capsules. In the other put the honey, lemon zest and the other two cardamom capsules. Bring both pots to a boil. Remove from heat and combine and stir the contents of both together.
Allow this to cool.
|Don't include the zest or cardamom|
Kind of like gingerbread cookie
