Heaven! Only change I made was substituting brown sugar (approx 2T) for the Splenda. I'm just not a big fan of artificial sweeteners. And don't you dare serve this over some cheap brand of vanilla ice cream! I served it over Haagen Daaz vanilla and this dessert is to die for and couldn't be easier and quicker to make. Even my kids loved it! Read More

This recipe sounded a bit adventurous so I decided to surprise my husband with a new tasty treat for dessert. I was a bit disappointed though. I bought a nice bottle of balsamic vinegar - as other reviewers suggested but to me the flavors didn't meld as well as I was hoping they would. I might try to make this again in the future but it is not on my list of favorites. Read More

Great recipe. I added a little more Balsamic to the strawberries and they were great. We put them in crepes for breakfast. Very easy to make. Read More

Didn't cook this on the stove so I didn't use the butter. Used regular sugar and a little more balsamic vinegar. Fabulous! My kids loved them just as they were and I didn't get to put them over ice cream. Read More

I'm giving this 4 stars because it has a lighter more delicate yet "proper" strawberry taste without the butter. Just let the cut strawberries marinate in the balsamic vinegar long enough (few hours). We like it with vanilla yogurt. Read More

yum! I used organic raw sugar no butter... and no HEAT! Instead I added about 3 tbsp of very good aged balsamic sliced the berries evenly on the mandolin and let them sit in the fridge for a couple of hours. They made their own wonderful syrup. I almost dont want to bother with the ice cream! I'm thinking that investing in the "good" balsamic makes he difference here - and allows the sauce to be rich and thick without the addition of butter. I'm going to be eating this all summer!

Simply Delicious. I used 1/4 cup sugar. My family loved it. The Balsamic vinegar gives it an exquisite flavor but doesn't taste like vinegar. Highly recommended. Read More

I've made Strawberries and Balsamic Vinegar sprinkled with a little Spenda (or real sugar) for my non-diabetic friends. This stuff is amazing. Sweet tart. Really brings out the flavour of the berries. Read More

I really wanted to try this recipe because I love fruit mascerated in Balsamic Vinegar. I used White Balsamic Vinegar in this because I received the bottle shown in the picutre from Avon and Ivon. I think it also kept the strawberries a natural red color. This is a very yummy low calorie dessert and I will make again. Four star rating because I felt the strawberries broke down too much. Don't know if it is me or what. I would have liked for them to a littel more firm. But this DID NOT affect the taste. Just the texture. Read More
