What you do with your berries is your own bid’ness, but might I offer this fine method. It’s maceration (which to me, means “kinda beat it up a little bit”) with vinegar and honey.
You can rub one out in minutes.
1 quart fresh strawberries
1/2 c balsamic vinegar
1 T raw honey
What to do:
Simmer vinegar over medium heat until reduced to half. Remove from heat, mix in honey, pour over berries and let sit at least 10 minutes. You can then add the berries to anything. I put them in my oatmeal with a dab of yogurt.
Maceration is a great start to your day!
