Balsamic is a very distinctive Italian vinegar that is aged for at least 10 or up to 100 years in various types of wooden barrels, each imparting its unique flavor and color.
Here, cooking balsamic with sugar gives it the thick, syrupy sweet richness of pricey imported aged balsamics, which are traditionally drizzled over fresh berries.
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 ½ cups premium vanilla ice cream
Combine the vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat.
Cook, stirring constantly, for 4 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
Stir in the strawberries.
Serve the strawberries warm over scoops of ice cream.
