Sweet Balsamic Strawberries with Crème Fraîche

Simple can be best, especially when it comes to sweet, locally grown strawberries.

Creme Fraiche is a tangy, cultured cream that is richer, thicker and more flavorful than sour cream. You can use regular, traditional balsamic if you don’t want to use strawberry balsamic; espresso balsamic would also be fantastic. For garnish, use mint or basil leaves, whichever pleases your palate.
