All you need to make these Sweet and Sour Summer Strawberries is a little apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, vanilla, and strawberries… simple as that!

The play between the sweetness of the maple and the sourness of the apple cider vinegar, mixed with natural sweet/sour flavor of the strawberries is really refreshing! And it’s a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth. Which is why this recipe has been my go-to dessert recipe lately.

I actually debated with myself as to whether I thought strawberries are sweet or sour/acidic in flavor and I decided that they are both to me. And I think that is why I love this simple recipe so much!

I am also a huge fan of the fact that these Sweet and Sour Summer Strawberries have apple cider vinegar in them. I’ve been trying to incorporate apple cider vinegar into my life more… and if it can be in a fun, fruity way, even better!

Since I love strawberries with balsamic vinegar, I hoped strawberries with apple cider vinegar could work too. And it soooo works!

The apple cider, maple, and vanilla melange makes it so that you can eat these strawberries right away OR you can let them sit in the sauce overnight to enjoy an almost candied version of these strawberries the next day.

I’ve had these for breakfast, dessert, and a snack. I can’t stop. But I’ve found that it’s gotten me in the habit of eating fruit for dessert. So no need to stop! 🙂

Note: fresh mint leaves tastes great in this recipe.
