Balsamic Cherry Ice Cream Topping

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

This is such a wonderful, elegant combination of flavors - balsamic vinegar, apple juice, sugar, with a hint of lemon and cinnamon, plus plump dark sweet cherries. It's fantastic over creamy rich vanilla ice cream!

Luscious! This was the finale of a birthday dinner with friends last night. The ingredients give it such a complex flavour and balance each other out perfectly. It complemented the vanilla ice cream perfectly, but it's so darned good I can't wait to try it over something else...lightly poached pears, maybe? :) Thanks for the great recipe.
