Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar – The Flavorful Infusion that is so worthwhile to make at home…

How lucky I feel to have strawberries available all summer long in Wisconsin. While there is nothing more flavorful and juicier than the fresh fruits straight from the vine from local berry patches during June, I love the fact that it’s super convenient to buy strawberries at the grocery store well into the summer months too!

The summer obsession that I can’t seem to get enough of for eating whole by the bowlful, another of my favorite ways to eat and use strawberries is to make homemade Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar.

Both sweet and tart, strawberry balsamic vinegar is incredibly easy to make at home, and there are so many ways to use the flavorful infusion.

Because it is so delightfully mellowly tart with a rich sweetness, think of strawberry balsamic vinegar in the same way that you would of any other syrup, but with fewer calories and carbohydrates than most sugary kinds. Use homemade Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar as a condiment or dressing for summer salads, as a sweet glaze or marinade for fish and chicken, to top ice cream, sweeten your iced tea, or to drizzle on cheesecake, French toast, pancakes, or waffles!

To flavor buttercream frosting or cream cheese, use a tablespoon as a mystery ingredient to make your recipe a most memorable experience – leaving your guests to wonder what your secret ingredient just might be.

With a hint of extra sweetness, you can also add a little strawberry balsamic vinegar to smoothies, fruit salads, or macerated berries for a healthy benefit-filled flavor boost to accentuate the recipe.

Perfect for spring and summer dishes, for your pairing inspiration use strawberry balsamic vinegar with:

  • Sweet and sour salad greens like arugula, mesclun, and rocket
  • Nuts like almonds, figs, pine nuts, and walnuts
  • Fruits like melons, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and grapes
  • Cheeses like brie, goat cheese, and mascarpone
  • Use in appetizers and for starters with bruschetta, fruit salads, pastries, and chocolate
