i don't think there was ever once i would polish off a whole punnet of strawberries in one sitting but ever since i discovered eating them with balsamic vinegar & sugar, it was all too effortless to do so. basically i think the strawberries we get in singapore are pretty sucky so they need some dressing up. macerating makes the berries extra juicy as the process draws out the juices and enhances its natural sweetness.
i made some pancakes to go along the strawberries and it was a lovely combination. i simply topped the pancakes with syrup & strawberries and i didn't even eat it with butter. simple and delicious. i used my trusty pancake recipe and you know what, this mommy from a particular forum tried my recipe and said her husband doesn't even eat mcdonalds' hot cakes anymore after trying mine. best compliment ever! :)
