Fresh & Creamy Dessert
¼ cup Botticelli Organic Balsamic Vinegar
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1-quart strawberries, halved leaves & stems removed
1 tablespoon snipped fresh mint (cut with a sharp scissor avoids brusing)
• Combine vinegar, sugar and pepper in medium bowl; stir until sugar dissolves.
• Add strawberries, then stir gently to coat them with the vinegar mixture.
• Rest the berries at room temperature, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with fresh mint just before serving.
Yield: 3 cups (4-6 servings)
Tip: Spoon these delicious berries over pound cake, angel food cake, ice cream, whipped cream or—our favorite—Italian cheeses such as ricotta or mascarpone.
