Balsamic Roasted Strawberries

 
I can’t believe I’ve missed making these Balsamic Roasted Strawberries most part of my life. Well, as they say – better late than never (who is they anyway??).

Roasting strawberries not only releases their natural sweetness, it also intensifies the flavor and create that syrupy jammy goodness. The acidity in the balsamic vinegar lends a slight tang to create an overall sweet and tangy mouthfeel. These balsamic roasted strawberries are perfect to go with your ice-cream, in your yogurt, on top of your breakfast pancakes and even in cakes.

I’ve used them as a filling for my upcoming Christmas Dessert special – Dark Chocolate Roulade with Roasted Strawberry Mousse. Do keep a look out for it this coming Friday! 

 

Ingredients:
2 punnet (500 g) fresh strawberries – washed and hulled
4 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar (if unavailable, you could leave it out and the strawberries will still taste good)
2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

Makes approx. 1 (250 g) jar
