Strawberries With Balsamic Vinegar

Strawberries With Balsamic Vinegar created by GaylaJ

I love this recipe! It is from the "Frugal Gourmet Whole Family Cookbook" by Jeff Smith. I've made this simple recipe for many years. People are always impressed but... I never tell them how easy it is to make. Some recipes are best kept secret. But I will share this one...

Ready In:
2hrs 15mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 pint ripe strawberry
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

directions

  • Hull the strawberries and cut them into quarters lengthwise.
  • Place in a bowl and toss with the vinegar and sugar.
  • Cover and allow to rest on the counter for about an hour so that the berries will "juice" then chill in the fridge for another hour.
  • Toss again before serving.
  • (I like a little more vinegar sprinkled on before serving but do this to your own taste.
  • I should mention that these strawberries do not keep well so they should be prepared and eaten the same day. If made more than a few hours ahead of time they are mushy and texturally unappealing. Just thought I should mention that.

    Have been doing Strawberry's, Watermelon Balls, Peaches, Plums, etc. I use honey instead of sugar. Put in sealed container, in fridge overnight, then every time I walk past the fridge I'll reach in and turn the container over, so the juices marinate better. Also, serve with Whipped Cream, or over Ice Cream, or short cake.

    Never thought of this but this is really good. Made for the Potsie Recovery cook-a-thon because we all love this grumpy old so and so to bits. Yeah, bite me. Thanks Potsie <3

    I have loved strawberries this way for years. The only difference is I use a balsamic glaze purchased in the speciality section of the grocery storee. I also let them sit for an hour.

    I was a skeptic, but OMG!!!! this was really good!! I did sub Stevia in the Raw for the sugar, but it was still great!!

    I have made this recipe several times, with excellent results, but haven't rated it yet. Today, I used it as a topping for a pavlova - it was a real treat. With hindsight, I realize that I should have drained the strawberries before adding it to the pavlova, as it was a little too juicy, but I love the juice, so it didn't occur to me. I followed the directions to the letter, and it was perfect.
