4 pints (8 cups) fresh strawberries, slicked thick
2 Tbs. sugar
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 pints vanilla ice cream, for serving
Freshly grated lemon zest, for serving
Thirty minutes to an hour before serving, combine the strawberries, balsamic vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in a bowl. Set aside and allow the flavors to mingle.
Place a serving of the strawberries in a bowl with a scoop of ice cream on top and dust lightly with lemon zest. The leftover liquid is too good to waste. Grab a spoon and drizzle it over the top. Also try over pound cake or angle food cake.
