  • 2 pints strawberries hulled and split
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • Splash Balsamic vinegar



  • In a large bowl, stir together the strawberries with the sugar and vanilla. Allow the mixture to sit for about 15 minutes until the berries are “weepy”.


  • Transfer about 3/4 of the strawberries (and some of the liquid at the bottom of the bowl) to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook until the fruit starts to “break down”, 5-8 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir back into the bowl with the raw ones. Stir in a splash Balsamic.
