More About National Strawberry Parfait Day 🍓

Because strawberries are in season during June, it only makes sense that National Strawberry Parfait Day is celebrated in June when fresh and juicy strawberries are available in abundance. Strawberry parfait originated from France in the late 1800s. The oldest recipe dates back to 1892. The French version of parfait consisted of custard made from sugar, eggs, cream, and syrup. All these ingredients are boiled and cooked to a thick consistency. Initially, the parfait was eaten as is but, later on, fruit was added to the recipe to counter the rich and creamy texture. Many people enjoyed strawberries in parfait as the sweet and tangy flavor and aroma of the fruit complemented it. Soon, globalization took the recipe to other parts of the world and, today, it is a much-loved dessert. The U.S. version of the dessert involves putting a dash of liquor or chocolate into the recipe. Healthier versions of the recipe call for the substitution of whipping cream and ice cream with yogurt instead. You can make your own strawberry parfait at home and you can start by collecting fresh strawberries from your local farms. Combine all the ingredients in a container and stick it in the freezer. Make sure to stir your mixture infrequently in order to get that perfect parfait texture. Because they are so popular, special tall glasses were invented for serving parfaits so that they are also a visual treat.
