There are so many ways to enjoy fresh strawberries. Try this fun and delicious recipe using our Lucky Lime & Sea Salt honey!
1 cup fresh strawberries, quartered or sliced
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Lucky Lime & Sea Salt honey, or Tuscan Blue Rosemary & Pepper honey
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt
In a small sauce cup, combine balsamic vinegar, sea salt, black pepper and your choice of either Lucky Lime & Sea Salt honey or Tuscan Blue Rosemary & Pepper honey. Stir to combine. Place fresh strawberries in a medium-size bowl. Drizzle the honey sauce over the strawberries. Gently stir them for one minute to coat them evenly. Set them aside at room temperature for 10 minutes. Repeat this stirring process two more times. Store these macerated strawberries in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to the three days.
Serve these strawberries straight out of the bowl, or over shortcakes, ice cream, yogurt, or oats. Shake them with ice and alcohol to create a delicious cocktail.
