recipe via the kitchn
1/3 cup good-quality aged balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 pints fresh, in-season, strawberries
8 ounces creme fraiche
fresh mint leaves, thinly sliced
1. Remove the stems and slice the strawberries lengthwise; small berries should be quartered, and larger berries can be cut in sixths or eighths.
2. In a bowl large enough to hold the berries, combine the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Add the strawberries and toss to coat. Cover and set aside to allow berries to macerate in the vinegar mixture at least 2 hours, re-tossing every half hour.
3. To serve, place a mound of berries on in a shallow bowl with a dollop of creme fraiche and a sprinkling of mint leaves.
