Strawberries and Balsamic Vinegar

I recently joined the Food52 food community. A great food site offering recipes, recipe contests and forums. The recipe contests also include recipe testing from the members. Last week I tested two from vinegar contest. I wanted to have a testing theme so I chose two recipes that included strawberries and balsamic vinegar.

This has a lovely tang of to compliment the sweet strawberries. You can put it on anything or eat it by the spoonful.

When making this recipe I wasn’t quite sure how I would feel about the cup of balsamic vinegar going into the syrup. It turned out quite nice. First a sweet strawberry flavor finished by the acidity of the balsamic vinegar was very refreshing.

I am not sure if I could spend the whole afternoon drinking this but I think it is a nice idea for an afternoon picnic.
