Balsamic Strawberries

When we first heard of someone putting balsamic vinegar on strawberries we made a face. Then we saw the Barefoot Contessa do it and it seemed like the best idea on earth. Seriously, if you've never seen her show on Food Network, you should try to catch a few episodes. You'll wish you were one of her gay best friends in the Hamptons. Contessa can do no wrong in our world. The strawberries are sweet, but there is a hint of spiciness that makes them really good. The next time we make these, we'll serve it with homemade ice cream or maybe creme brulee.

Balsamic Strawberries:
2 pints (4 cups) sliced fresh strawberries
2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Mix all ingredients together and let sit for at least 30 minutes before serving.

I didn't realize you were such a wonderful cook - my hubby is, too. I love balsamic strawberries. We are Food Network junkies, too! My Mom loved Ina! This blog is hilarious! Love and miss you!
