Balsamic strawberries


  • 2 punnets of strawberries, topped and halved
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar


Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Make sure that all the brown sugar has dissolved.

Cover and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Stir every 30 minutes.

Serve over ice-cream.


  • Soaking strawberries in this combination is called maseration. It applies to soaking fruit in anything like vinegar or liquer.
  • The flavour combination will surprise you and this is a really simple dessert that takes little preparation at serving time. It’s great for dinner parties and if I am looking to make it fancy, I crumble meringue over the top for texture.
