I added balsamic vinegar to strawberries and baked them for a fabulous taste treat!! The recipes comes from my Balsamic Strawberry Cobbler Recipe! The balsamic vinegar is great with strawberries; it brings out the berries' beautiful color and truly enhances their flavor. Balsamic vinegar also has a slightly sweet taste and gives the strawberries an extra surprising ZING! I got a new one I wanted to try called De Nigris "I Fruttati" Balsamic Fig Vinegar, and it worked perfectly in this recipe! I would imagine that any of their fruit balsamic vinegars or any regular balsamic vinegar would work!! The resulting strawberry flavor was incredible!

I made the Roasted Balsamic Strawberry Sauce, and drizzled it over freshly baked and toasted slices of the Chocolate Cream Cheese Pound Cake Recipe! It's divine!

6 cups (three, 16-ounce packages) sliced strawberries; slice berries and measure
