Roasted Strawberries with Black Pepper

Serve these delicious
roasted strawberries over ice cream, pound cake or cheesecake for dessert, or
mix them into plain Greek yogurt for a sweet and savory breakfast treat.

Ingredients

  • 2 pints strawberries,
    stems removed
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly
    ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons
    balsamic vinegar

Directions

  1. Rinse the
    strawberries in cool water; place in a strainer or colander and shake off most
    of the water.

  2. Slice the
    strawberries about ⅛ inch thick,
    place them in a large bowl and sprinkle them with the sugar. Cover and
    refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.

  3. Heat the oven
    to 375 F. Toss the strawberries with the black pepper, add the balsamic vinegar
    and put the strawberries and all of their juices into a large sauté pan or a
    large ovenproof dish.

  4. Roast for 8 to
    10 minutes, until the juices are bubbling and the strawberries are hot but not
    mushy. Divide among individual dishes and serve immediately.
