Peppered Strawberries

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.

Peppered Strawberries

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.
