Pickled Balsamic Strawberries + Lyon Farms Feature

Strawberry season is upon us! Strawberry jams, preserves, pies, muffins, shrubs, jellies, pickles!! Where are you on the “ways I preserve strawberries before the peak season ends (3 weeks)” list? So far this season I’ve scratched off a strawberry shrub, some strawberry ricotta muffins, and now pickled strawberries! Last year’s strawberry pantry was a bit more impressive as wild strawberries were a plenty around the Lil’ House. Anyways, after wading my way through the massive farmers’ market lines last weekend, people were ecstatic for clear skies, I managed to grab my share of locally grown strawberries harvested from Lyon Farms.

I realize that I feature Lyon Farms quite often probably because they happen to always have the latest super hot thing that I’m trying to put up, plus they’re my local PYO farm. Last summer I spent many of weekend day dawning a big straw hat while picking berries at their Falls Lake farm. Due to camping, Mother’s Day, and the required garden weekends, unfortunately this year I don’t think I’ll find the time for a farm visit. Alas, there’s always time for playing with a pickled strawberry recipe. For my entry for the April FIJ Mastery Challenge I played around with a menage of balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and strawberries.

  1. Wow! I’ve never pickled strawberries before, but I’ve used balsamic to make a balsamic reduction – so I’m curious what kind of effect pickling the strawberries in balsamic would do to them. Originally the balsamic has that familiar acidic taste but when you reduce it, it becomes sweet. So I wonder if it leaves any sweetness on the strawberries or if it simply pulls their own sweetness out of them. Definitely a recipe I want to try! Thank you for sharing!
