1. In a pan gently heat the strawberries with the sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, star anise (if using) and mint for 5 minutes.
2. In the meantime whip the cream with the icing sugar. Taste and add more sugar if desired remembering that the strawberries will add some sweetness too.
3. Stir through the saffron and the hazelnuts.
4. Serve the broken strawberries with a good dollop of hazelnut cream.
Anjali’s Tip: This recipe also tastes great mixed with raspberries and blueberries.
