Two flavors you may never have thought to find in the same recipe – balsamic vinegar and ripe red strawberries. I may never have tried this combination if I hadn’t been offered it at a friend’s house as the sound of it rather put me off. How wrong I was! The taste is hard to describe but suffice it to say that you get a hint of balsamic vinegar before the sweetness takes over. Best eaten the day it is made and is delicious served with meringues.
16 oz ripe strawberries – quartered and then cut into small pieces
2 tbsp. good quality balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp. sugar
Place strawberries in a serving bowl, pour over the vinegar, then add the sugar and stir.
Cover the bowl and leave on counter top for half an hour or so, then refrigerate for an hour before serving.
