Gourmet Oil and Vinegar

Sliced Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

modena balsamic vinegarServes 6


  • 1/3 cup aged balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 pints washed and sliced strawberries
  • Fresh Ground black pepper, just enough for flavor

Warm the balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, and fresh lemon juice to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until the syrup is reduced by half (to 3 tablespoons) this should not take more than 3 minutes. Pour syrup into a small bowl and let cool completely.

Place strawberries in a large bowl and toss gently with brown sugar. Let stand 10- 15 minutes until the sugar dissolves. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar syrup over the strawberries, add just a pinch of fresh ground pepper to taste. Gently combine. Serve the fresh sliced strawberries and syrup with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Villa Bellentani VSQP Balsamico di Modena makes this dessert recipe extraordinary.
