Strawberries with a Twist

With strawberry season upon us, here’s a tip for some of the most delicious strawberries you’ll ever eat. The classic dressing for strawberries has historically been a little sugar and a squirt of fresh lemon. While even the sweetest freshest strawberries benifit from a light sprinkling of these two ingredients, one dressing you may not have thought of is balsamic vinegar.

In Europe, a good quality balsamic is often used in desserts. Something amazing happens when you combine these two ingredients. The one trick is finding a superior balsamic vinegar. Balsamic vinegar is an abundant staple in every supermarket these days, so knowing the difference between a real balsamic and a balsamic flavored vinegar can be a daunting task. Start by looking for a vinegar that is aged at least ten years and labeled Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale (traditional balsamic vinegar) from Modena, Italy.

Check the ingredient list, a fine quality balsamic requires no addition of extracts, sugars, or artifical anything. Simply grape must. This usually comes at a bit of a premium, price-wise, but this quality vinegar is the one I use and reserve for desserts such as fruit or ice cream. Because it is intended to be used sparingly, a small bottle will go a long way. Once you savor a true dark rich Balsamic, unfettered by a host of other flavors you will understand what all the fuss is about and you’ll never be without it in your pantry.

Hi Toni: I watched your program from Sonoma Co. Sat. 1-29-2011 and saw you prepare baby spinach, strawberry, nut and red onion salad. Where can I get this recipe? I am new to you and love what you do/say/prepare. Thanks, Terry Francis

Hello. I totally agree with you about the Balsamic Vinegar used on strawberries. I just recently bought a bottle from World Harvest Foods, a small website from Columbia, Missouri that brings in some of the best foods from around the world. I bought the 25-Year old Tradizionale Balsamic Vinegar and it was extremely good on the fresh strawberries I got from the market and vanilla ice cream. I also got some of their a href="http://www.worldsfoods.com/view.asp?prod_ID=2884">Sidr Honey of Hadramaut and oh my was it good! I highly recommend you to go to their website to see what they have!
