Roasted Balsamic Strawberries

Published by Bonnie on

This recipe for roasted balsamic strawberries is so easy to prepare and tastes amazing.  There are a few strong contrasting flavors here: the sweetness of the strawberries and the tartness of the balsamic vinegar.  But your taste buds will love it!

I got the idea for this dessert straight out of northern Tuscany from a wonderful Italian cookbook, “The Italian Mama’s Kitchen.”

Roasted Balsamic StrawberriesWhen I first made this, I wondered how it would end up tasting (and if our kids would like it).  The balsamic vinegar smells strong when roasting in the oven.  However, when we put this together with homemade vanilla ice cream, we were sold!

The taste is amazingly awesome!  I like how there is not much sugar in this recipe because the strawberries provide most of the sweetness.
