Yes yes, I know, I am a big strawberry addict! And this desert is truly my favourite. Everytime I tell people I use pepper and vinegar on for my marinated strawberries, they look at me with big eyes. They only understand why after they have tried it!
Originally I used an authentic Italian recipe with classic balsamic vinegar and sugar. But after a while I started to give it a twist ending up with a perfect blend of acidity, sweetness and freshness. My secret?
White balsamic vinegar, lavender honey and fresh mint… The pepper is the cherry on the cake, enhancing the smell of strawberries. Wow, I love this desert.
