For something quick and simple, try fresh macerated strawberries in a good quality balsamic. These are the perfect finale to a rich meal, and a day of overeating, perhaps. With a blob of mascarpone and plenty of fresh mint, this is a taste sensation.
Have the strawberries ready chopped in the bowl and add the balsamic and sugar up to two hours before serving. Any leftovers are great with your muesli the following morning.
- Cut larger strawberries into quarters or halves. Place them in a large bowl.
- Sprinkle over balsamic, sugar, and cointreau. Toss gently to combine then leave to sit for up to two hours. Before serving add mint or basil.
- Serve in glasses topped with a spoon of mascarpone.
