Roasted Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

Roasted Strawberries

So I have a confession.  I don’t like balsamic vinegar very much.  I know, right?  Balsamic is everywhere!  Everyone seems to like it.  But to me, it’s too sweet for savory goods. But when paired with already sweet strawberries, the vinegar makes them come alive.

Why roast your strawberries?  Roasting brings out their natural sweetness and adding just a touch of sugar creates a nice syrup.  Eat these plain with a spoon or swirled into yogurt or piled on top of a bowl of ice cream.

Roasted Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

  • 3 cups quartered strawberries
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

In a large bowl stir together strawberries, brown sugar, and vinegar.  Pour mixture onto a rimmed baking sheet covered in parchment.  Bake at 300 degrees for about 20 minutes.  Allow to cool and enjoy.
