Adapted from herbsspices.about.com

INGREDIENTS
1 pint (8 ounces) ripe strawberries, rinsed, hulled, and sliced
1 tablespoon sugar
2–3 teaspoons good-quality balsamic vinegar
Freshly ground coarse black pepper

PREPARATION

  • Place the sliced berries in a medium nonreactive bowl (such as glass).
  • Sprinkle the berries with sugar and balsamic vinegar, and toss gently to coat. Allow the berries to macerate in the mixture for about 15 minutes.
  • Add 2–3 grinds of coarse black pepper to the berries, and toss to coat. Allow the flavors to blend about 5 minutes more before serving.
  • Serve the berries over salad, ice cream, or toasted pound cake. Try them in shortcake or serve with a bit of whipped cream or lightly sweetened mascarpone.

Serves 2–3. Prep time, 5 minutes; seasoning time, 20 minutes.

Cook’s note: Recipe can be doubled. The better the quality of the balsamic vinegar and berries you use, the better this recipe will taste.
