Strawberry Balsamic Sundae
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 Serving
  • Ice cream {any kind will do}
  • 3-5 sliced strawberries
  • ½ c good balsamic vinegar*
  • Optional: 2 tb honey/brown sugar
  1. Begin with the balsamic by slowly bringing it to a boil. Turn down the heat and allow it to simmer. Add the honey/brown sugar if using. The entire process should take no longer than 10-15 minutes. It is ready when it coats the back of a spoon, leaves a trail behind when stirred, and has reduced by *nearly* half. Don't cook it off too deeply or it will get way too thick. Let cool.
  2. Toss the strawberries in as much or as little of the syrup as desired.
  3. Nudge onto scooped ice cream.
When cooking {vs. drinking/serving straight up} with the balsamic vinegar, a high price tag isn't as necessary. Experiment with what tastes good to you. I like to pick ones with that are viscous with notes of figs or honey. Use what is within your price range and appeals to you.
