Balsamic Strawberries

If you’ve never tried this revolutionary dessert, you absolutely must take a chance on it. The first time I heard of Balsamic Strawberries, I turned my nose up and grimaced. Strawberries, balsamic vinegar, and pepper? No way that could be any good.

Boy was I wrong!  This stuff works.

I should warn you, though. I am a complete and unrepentant strawberry fanatic. I’m even giving them their own tag. If there is a way to put strawberries in anything, I’m down for it. And I am going to convert you.

If you’ve already had the pleasure of tasting this off-beat treat, I’ve made it simple to recreate without needing to slave over an oven making the balsamic reduction. I you’ve never had the pleasure, take a chance, and make this. You won’t regret it.
