Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar and Pepper

Summer brings with it abundance of veggies and fruits that are at their peak of freshness and a great time to try out various recipes. In summer, visits to the farmers market are a must for my family. My son loves to pick out the fruits by himself. And I let him do so cause I feel he actually eats what he brings. Last weekend we had picked up a few pints of fresh strawberries and yesterday was the last of them.

Red strawberries pop off the teal blue pail from Target. 

After yesterdays cleaning, I thought "the girl needs to treat herself". So out came an easy recipe that I had book marked from Sweet Paul Magazine (Summer 2013 issue). Such a wonderful easy recipe that combines sweet and sour flavors beautifully. The palate begs for more with every single spoon. You can put this recipe together in about less than 1/2 hr. Now, that's my kind of recipe.

Made with fresh Strawberries from the farmers market.
Dessert after dinner was a sure surprise for my son and husband. The verdict -  we need to make this more often. 
Now for the recipe -  Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar and Pepper
Serves 4
1/2 cup Balsamic vinegar (Note: For those of you sending your husbands with the grocery list please let them know that balsamic vinegar is different from the balsamic vinaigrette. The latter is a dressing consisting of oil and various flavoring whereas balsamic vinegar is plain distilled grain and grape juice )
2 tablespoon sugar
1 pint small strawberries hulled
freshly ground pepper

Combine the sugar and vinegar in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer until thick. Approximately 8- 10 minutes. Let cool. Place the cut strawberries in a bowl and pour the mixture over. Lightly toss and add desired amount of pepper. Tastes like heaven with vanilla ice cream.

It was hard to keep my son away until I finished shooting the pictures :)
