An absolutely delicious dessert. I've seen similar recipes where the pepper is optional, but trust me, you want the pepper.

Made these for dessert tonight and everyone enjoyed them. They were very different for us but good. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

Yum - what a treat! I've had balsamic strawberries before but have never added pepper. It adds a subtle flavor that really enhances the flavor of the strawberries. Served over Shortcakes (Robin's Best Biscuits) and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2009
