Peppery Strawberry Juice Recipe
The first time I saw my friend grind black pepper over her strawberries I thought she’d actually flipped. But once I’d tasted this traditional Mediterranean culinary trick, I realized why people did it.
The pepper somehow magnifies the flavour of strawberries and makes them even more delicious.
Combining that taste with luscious, ripe melon makes this a memorable drink. Because you are using the whole fruit, it’s filling and substantial:the perfect alternative as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon sustaining snack.
