    I think they eat it that way in Spain, and also Brazil.
    Yup, Spain, one of their few good eating habits. Cause then they eat strawberries with cream instead of sugar and it's like, what the hell?

    Ahh, clovers, an excellent anaesthetic. It's not a common childhood experience, I believe, but I can certainly see why parents might incorporate a mild anaesthesic in their kids diets.

    I didn't know that was clover, but I never tried it myself. I'll have an unripe avocado. It's using the spoon that drives me crazy.

    What the. I thought people put sugar on strawberries only if they were poor. Next you're gonna say tomato doesn't go on toast.

    Nop, nata on strawberries is just plain amateur. You lose all the taste of the strawberry, and you have to tolerate the taste of the cream. Lose-lose situation.

    Fresh ripe strawberries with cream are so delicious.

    Maybe you just need Louisiana strawberries. They're some of the best.

    @Madrigal--poor people or poor strawberries? Doesn't matter much. Strawberries are sugar soluble. Sugaring them is the first step in making a variety of strawberry dishes, ranging from jams and jellies to pies and other strawberry filled deserts--or freeze it and eat it like a sorbet, or, well, many things.

    So, yeah, to the extent that home canning and baking are poor people practices, putting sugar on strawberries is what poor people do. Similarly poor strawberries, like the ones that grew in contact with the ground causingthem to develop a mold spot, are the first ones to go into the jam pot--preferably after cutting away the bad spots.

    How can they be the best if they need cream?
    Most of time, when people ask why something terrible happened, they don't realize they are looking for someone to blame.

    The weight and depth of the cream balance the specific light sweetness of the strawberries. It is a dance of flavor.

    You can add sugar to the strawberries as well. My family traditionally does... but in my opinion it's overkill.
