I just returned from a lovely girls only trip to Walt Disney World and one of my favorite new things we did this trip were eating our way around the World Showcase through the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Outdoor Kitchens!
I wanted to be sure to try out the Beijing-style Candied Strawberries at China's Food Booth, Lotus House. These fan favorites from last year's festival served on a bamboo skewer were a bit harder to eat than I had anticipated. Basically after trying to delicately pull berries off with my teeth I gave up on that pretension and just used my fingers. Things went much more smoothly and after washing my hands we wandered off to see more of the world.
|Yep. It's that shiny. The yellow cast to the berries is from the color of the glaze rather than under-ripeness.|
Make no mistake, this is a sweet candy or dessert, but one I highly recommend as it avoids tasting cloying from a balance of the slight tartness of the fruit and the sesame's soft nuttiness.
