*Strawberry Pepper Shrub Syrup
To be made several hours ahead (I know, but aren’t great things worth waiting for!)
1 cup of fresh strawberries – hulled and sliced
1 cup of pure cane sugar
2 teaspoons of coarsely ground fresh black peppercorns (I used Tellicherry
2 tablespoons of the best Balsamic Vinegar from Modena you can afford (I used a 25 year old aged)
In a bowl, add the strawberries, sugar, and pepper together. Cover and let sit several hours or overnight
Stir once or twice to bring up the sugar from the bottom. Stir and strain, discard solids. Add vinegar and it is ready to use.
