Lightly Peppered Strawberries

The Spanish and French were the first settlers in Florida and in the early 1800's American settlers grew tired of being under Spanish control. In 1814 General Andrew Jackson captured Pensacola. This resulted in Spain happily selling Florida to the United States for a mere $5 million, handing over control in 1821. With a magnificant climate and rich lands on which to farm Florida manages to produce some of the most delicious fruit and vegetables in the world-this recipe will give you some idea! Cook time is marinating time.


  1. Hull the strawberries, cut them in half and put into a bowl. Sprinkle with pepper, sugar and finely chopped mint. Toss gently and let sit for 1 hour at room temperature. Toss again after 1/2 hour.
  2. Serve sprinkled with a little mint on top. Enjoy!

Sharon, we received the most delicious locally grown strawberries in our CSA box last week and I wanted to use some of them in a recipe. I crushed a few whole white peppercorns; fresh mint from our garden, too. Made for Las Fresas-Strawberries in the the<br/>Spanish forum and a crosstag in the Veg Tag game/June.
