  • 1 kg sugar
  • 1 lemon juice and zest
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 tbsp basil fresh basil chopped


  • Wash strawberries just before using so they don't absorb too much water and hull them removing stalks and leaves, half if they are large.
  • Warm the strawberries and sugar in a large heavy based pan over moderate heat to dissolve the sugar.
  • All the balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, pepper and orange zest and stir well.
  • Bring to the boil and boil rapidly for approximately 20 minutes or until the setting point has been reached (test with a well chjilled saucer, a spoonful should form a skin and wrinkle when you touch it after a couple of minutes).
  • Toss in the basil and stir well before spooning into jars.
