Tips | Notes:

STRAWBERRY COMPOTE: You'll need: 2 cups strawberries, diced, 3/4 cup pure cane sugar, 2 tsps lemon juice, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 1 Tbsp corn starch, 2 Tbsps warm water.

Directions: Combine strawberries, pure cane sugar, lemon juice and vanilla extract in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer until the strawberries are soft. Now mix corn starch in a small bowl with warm water until well combined and lump-free. Add mixture to saucepan with strawberries and stir until syrup thickens and reduced slightly, approximately 8-10 minutes, Continue to stir occasionally. 

HOMEMADE WHIPPED CREAM: In the bowl of an electric mixer on medium-high speed, whip the heavy cream (3 cups), using the whisk attachment for 4-5 minutes, until fluffy peaks begin to form. **NOTE: When it begins to thicken after the first 2-3 minutes, gradually add in 1 Tbsp vanilla extract and a pinch of sea salt.** Once fully fluffy, remove from mixer bowl and continue recipe.
