The world of fermentation.
This compote is only lightly sweetened so the focus is on the surprisingly delicious combination of fruity, floral strawberries and the spicy, savory chili powder (or garam masala) and cracked black pepper. Grated citrus zest nicely ties together the disparate flavors. We briefly cook then mash only a portion of the berries, then pour them while still hot over the remaining berries. The residual heat softens the fresh fruit ever so slightly. Serve over ice cream or yogurt.
