The Secret To The Best Pickled Strawberries Is Red Wine Vinegar
There’s a science to pairing strawberries and vinegar. Rather than use just any tart liquid to craft pickled strawberries, the fruit is best when combined with red wine vinegar.
The crisp acidity of vinegar works to balance the syrupy sweetness of strawberries. It can intensify color, impart a greater degree of depth, and enhance the fruitiness.
The alcohol undergoes a fermentation process that eventually causes it to sour, resulting in a raspberry-hued liquid that manages to display nuanced fruit flavors from the wine.
