This "strawberries in brown sugar and balsamic vinegar" intrigues me. Would you care to elaborate?
I did it originally over ice cream and it was a big hit so I thought I would experiment with cheesecake and it too was a success (though some people do not like you messing with their strawberries!).
Prepare your fresh strawberries by cleaning and removing the hulls and then slice halve or leave them whole. Put a couple of shakes of good balsamic vinegar over them and a tablespoon or two of sugar (depending on how many you have). Stir it together and let them sit in the fridge for awhile. The juice from the berries and the vinegar meld to make a wonderful "syrup". You can grind some black pepper over as well, but don't get too carried away with it.
