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.

Among the Top 20 #food #antioxidants, #strawberries are potent little #aggregatefruit packages that protect your heart! #healthy #glutenfree #strawberrybalsamic #recipe

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.

Meet Kymberley [Upson] Pekrul

A professional writer and self-taught Gfree lifestyle expert on [most] gluten-free things, I’ve always loved cooking and creating delicious foods from scratch for myself and those I love.

My journey began when everything I thought I knew about cooking and eating suddenly changed one day when I discovered I was celiac. So, I re-learned how to eat, cook, and navigate through life gluten-free – trusting God and His plan for me.

I live in what’s known as the Holylands of Central Wisconsin. All the recipes you’ll find here are gluten-free and inspired by the people and places I love most. Whenever possible, I cook with seasonal ingredients using whole foods – Making dishes suitable for everyday life and all food lovers gathered at the same table.

Gfree cooking, health, and wellness ARE my life. And this little corner of the internet is where I share what I’ve learned – Where my passion IS to nourish everyday GfreeDeliciously!
