"Doubtless God could have made
a better berry (than the strawberry),
but doubtless God never did."
- William Allen Butler
This is the recipe intended for the punnet (basket) of fresh-from-the-farm strawberries... instead, one by one, they disappeared into the sweetest kiss-along-the-lips indulgences... ah, the generous charm of a fresh new season of life...
Balsamic Berry Salad
- Sara Haws Frost
2 punnets strawberries, hulled and sliced in quarters
1 punnet blueberries
Toss berries in a large bowl (you can add additional berries if you like), add balsamic vinegar and white sugar by tablespoons until you reach your preferential balance of tang, sweetness and stickiness.
