It’s strawberry season, and as we’ve come to expect, the supermarket strawberries are gigantic. That makes them good candidates for grilling; the bigger berries straddle the grill grate without sinking and hold their shape better than the wee ones.

Doused in balsamic vinegar, rolled in sugar and skewered, strawberries develop a more concentrated flavor when grilled. The heat caramelizes the natural sugars, enhancing the fruit’s sweetness. Balsamic vinegar adds a tangy touch.

It’s tempting to eat the berries straight off the skewer — keeping the stems on helps with that. But you can also serve them with roast pork tenderloin, grilled sliced angel food or pound cake, ice cream or Greek yogurt. The berries cook quickly, so don’t leave them unattended or you’ll have strawberry jam.

Come to think of it, that wouldn’t be a bad thing.

 

GRILLED STRAWBERRIES

 

1

pint strawberries, rinsed and patted dry

1/4

cup balsamic vinegar

1/2

cup sugar

 

Place berries in a pie plate and pour the vinegar over them, tossing to coat. Let sit for about 15 minutes, turning to coat all sides. One by one, roll strawberries in sugar to coat.

Place sugared strawberries on wax paper. Thread 3 or 4 sugared strawberries on skewers. On a medium-hot grill with a clean grill grate, grill for 2 to 4 minutes, turning once, until light grill marks appear and the strawberries begin to render their juice. Serve warm.

Makes 4 servings.

I will NEVER fire up my grill for strawberries. That is just wrong.
