Ice Cream with Strawberries and Red Wine

  • 2 pints strawberries, stems removed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup dry red wine
  • One 3-inch-long cinnamon stick
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint, for garnish
    • Step 1

      If strawberries are small, cut in half; if large, cut in quarters.

    • Step 2

      Combine sugar, red wine, and cinnamon stick in a large skillet; cook over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes.

    • Step 3

      Add strawberries and pepper; cook until berries soften slightly, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat, discard cinnamon stick, and divide berries and sauce among dishes; serve with vanilla ice cream and a sprig of mint, if desired.
