The recipe

Leave a comment

4 cups halved or quartered strawberries

(Needless to say, these need to be fresh Ontario strawberries. I got mine at Herrles.)

2 1/2 tsp. balsamic vinegar

(Don’t chintz here. Get the good stuff. I used Balsamico Cotto by John D’Angelo. Available at Brady’s.)

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

3/4 cup low-fat sour cream

(Nothing special here; no-name brand, I think)

1 1/2 Tbs. granulated sugar

2 tsp. grated lemon rind

Sprinkle the strawberries with the vinegar, brown sugar, and pepper, and toss; let stand 15 to 20 minutes. Mix the sour cream, granulated sugar, and lemon rind. Plop on strawberries. Eat.

How’s it taste? To quote DH: “This tastes the way good sex feels.”
