Baking fruit is a great way to concentrate the flavors. I especially like doing it when strawberries are out of season and still a little firm. The balsamic vinegar is optional but gives them a nice kick. These would be a great topping on ice cream, oatmeal, pancakes, pound cake, or chocolate cake.
