View Recipe PDF
Serves 9


  • 1 ½ pounds strawberries, washed and cut in half
  • 1/3 cup can sugar
  • 1 tbl raw honey
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tbl cane sugar
  • 1 tbl raw honey
  • ¼ tsp vanilla paste


Combine ingredients gently in a bowl, as not to crush the berries. Taste the berries before adding the sugar; if they are very sweet, you can use less sugar. Set bowl in refrigerator for about an hour before serving to allow the flavors to combine. The strawberries will also release some natural juice which you can drizzle over the cake.

honey Whipped Cream: In a very cold mixing bowl, combine the cream, sugar, honey and vanilla. Whisk until medium peaks form. Refrigerate until serving.

*We use local fruit whenever possible for the best flavor, and you can vary the berries by what is currently in season. We also use raw honey for the same reason. Serve with both the polenta cake and the lemongrass bars.
