Balsamic Strawberries

Sharing is caring!

These balsamic strawberries are the perfect summertime dessert. Made with aged balsamic and topped with fresh whipped cream.

Today while I was at work I realized I would have no time to put something on my blog.

Since I do genuinely love my blog I didn’t want to neglect it.

I looked around my boss’s house for inspiration and I found it tucked away in the back corner of the pantry. There sat a small bottle of aged balsamic.

The second I saw the little bottle I knew what I wanted to do so I hightailed it to the market and picked up some strawberries and heavy cream.

The second I got back to my boss’s house I cut up my berries and started the maceration process.

After a few hours, I decided it was time to start whipping the cream (aka: arm exercise) and dig into my summer dessert.

I had never tried balsamic with strawberries before and I will honestly have to say that after today I’m a HUGE fan.

The syrupy-aged balsamic added so much extra flavor to the berries and I was truly shocked at how well it tasted.

I whipped my cream by hand and didn’t add any sugar but if sweetened cream is your forte then by all means add some sugar. Enjoy!!!
