Anti-Recipe: Strawberry Eatin’ Mess

The strawberry crops have been coming in and while I could eat them plain by the bowlfuls, I wanted to find another way to enjoy this lovely berry. I found an idea here and decided to try it. The actual name of this typically British dessert is Eaton Mess, as in Eaton College. Apparently it was served at the school’s annual picnic. Since I have always been prone to mishearing words and phrases (i.e. chester drawers), I decided to rename it with a southern twist. Hope you enjoy this easy treat! The final product isn’t all that pretty to look at, but it sure was pretty to taste!






Has anybody tried this dessert before? It’s definitely a new favorite of mine!
