It's Strawberry Season

The grocery stores are filled with fresh strawberry. Some have signs "First of the Season". I bought two boxes but it didn't taste sweet as they advertised. What to do with them? Strawberry Sauce came to mind. My husband is crazy about Angel Food Cake and Strawberry Sauce goes wonderfully with Angel Food Cake. This sauce is also great with pound cake, shortcake, and over ice cream.

Strawberry Sauce

2 cups sliced strawberries
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup sugar (use only 1/4 cup sugar if you are eating with something very sweet such as ice cream)
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

Combine sliced strawberries, water, sugar, and balsamic vinegar in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; simmer until reduced to 3/4 cup (about 15 minutes). Cool. It's even better the next day. Keep in the fridge.

Leticia, achei estranho usar Balsamic Vinegar, dá algum gosto especial à receita ? Tenho morangos em casa e gostaria de fazer algo com eles, e, adorei essa idéia de sauce. Será que fica bom sem Balsamic Vinegar também ?

Oi Eliane,

O Balsamic Vinegar e muito usado em receitas italianas tantos doces quanto salgadas. Se voce nao usar balsamic vinegar, coloque 1 teaspoon de fresh lime juice.

Beijos, Leticia
