"I (used to) make my own Black Pepper Vanilla Ice Cream.  If the spirit moves you, make this ice cream to go with your berries.  You're welcome."

  • 8 c. fresh strawberries or other assorted berries
  • 5 Tbsp. Traditional Balsamic
  • 2 Tbsp. Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream, for serving

Combine the berries, balsamic, sugar and black pepper in a large bowl.  Set aside at room temperature for 30 minutes-1 hour.

Place a serving of the berries in a bowl with a scoop of ice cream.  Enjoy!
