Easy and delicious dip for strawberries

As a little girl, I always loved when my mom had parties, because that meant there was a good chance she might make strawberries and dip. Oh... that dip: I can very vividly remember eating one dipped strawberry after another, thinking that this was the most delicious thing I had ever eaten. Turns out, I still think it is delicious.

But, what I didn't realize then is how simple it is to make. Seriously, 5 minutes tops.

You need three things: Strawberries, of course:
(oh, strawberry season, i love you)

And, sour cream and brown sugar,
The proportion for the dip is 3 parts sour cream to 1 part brown sugar
Get them in a bowl together, and mix until the brown sugar crystals have disappeared
That's it!
Serve with a mess of strawberries (or other fruit if you like... but strawberries are immanently dippable)
And enjoy!

Dip for Strawberries (from my mama)
3 parts sour cream
1 part brown sugar*

Combine sour cream and brown with a hand mixer, mixing until brown sugar crystals have disappeared.

Serve with strawberries, or other fruit.

*(1 cup: 1/3 cup makes a good amount)
