Mexican Chilled Strawberry and Buttermilk Soup
2 pints ripe strawberries (reserve 6 for garnish)
1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
6 ounces masa harina
2 cups water
2 cups buttermilk
1 stick canela (cinnamon)
4-5 mint leaves, dried and chopped fine or powdered Hoya Santa
Remove the hulls from the strawberries and wash. Cut into thin slices, place in a bowl and mix with ½ cup of the sugar. Stir occasionally. Puree strawberries in a blender and set aside.
Stir the masa harina into the water to dissolve; strain though sieve.
In a 2-quart saucepan, heat the masa mixture, milk and canela stick.
Cook over medium heat and stir continuously with a wooden spoon. When the atole thickens after approximately 3 to 4 minutes, reduce the heat to low and add ¾ cup of the sugar and the puree of strawberries.
Continue to cook for 5 minutes, stirring continuously. Add additional milk if necessary; the atole should have a slightly thick but pourable consistency. Strain into a serving bowl.
Chill the soup until it is sufficiently cold the soup should be served chilled.
Pour into cups. Serve as a dessert soup garnished with fresh mint leaves, powdered mint a strawberry and some blueberries fanned out.
