Balsamic Black Pepper Strawberries

I know this sounds a little unusual, but it really is delicious.
I served the strawberries with strawberry ice cream.

  • 1 qt. ripe strawberries, rinsed, hulled and sliced
  • 3 Tb. sugar
  • 1-1/2 Tb. good quality balsamic vinegar
  • Freshly ground coarse black pepper.
Place the sliced berries in a medium bowl.  Sprinkle the berries with the sugar and balsamic vinegar and toss gently to coat.  Allow the berries to macerate in the vinegar and sugar mixture for 15 minutes.
Add 4 to 5 grinds of coarse black pepper to the berries, and toss to coat.

This simple Italian dessert is stunning on its own, and can be served over salad, ice cream or toasted pound cake.
