I’m not sure what would give someone the idea to put pepper on strawberries (possibly the same idea that inspired a person to first eat something that fell out of a chicken’s bum), but I’m glad they did! This seems like a strange combination, but you wouldn’t believe how yummy these are. A very refreshing light dessert.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Resting time: 1 hour
Serves: 4 (although when we made it, it only served 2 )
- 1 punnet strawberries
- 1 tsp white pepper (we used black pepper and it turned out great)
- 1.5 tbs (6 tsp) icing sugar
- 3 tsp chopped fresh mint (we used dried mint and it was fine)
Hull the strawberries, cut them in half and put them in a bowl. Sprinkle with pepper, sugar and finely chopped mint. Toss gently and let sit for 1 hour at room temperature. Toss again after 1/2 hour.
