Pickled Strawberries
Recipe Type: Side
Serves: 4
This is really a quick recipe, but what prolongs the misery is the waiting time, waiting for the flavours of cinnamon, star anise and brown sugar to amalgamate with the sweetness of strawberries and sour balsamic vinegar.
  • 400g strawberries
  • 2 inch grated ginger
  • 150ml balsamic vinegar
  • 50ml rice vinegar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 clove
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Few sprigs mint leaves
  • ½ cup sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  1. Boil the balsamic vinegar, with rice vinegar, sugar, water, spices and salt until simmering point.
  2. Arrange the grated ginger, strawberries and mint leaves in mason jars.
  3. Pour the hot vinegar until full.
  4. Once lukewarm, close the lid and refrigerate overnight or over couple of days before serving.
