Strawberry Sauce With A Bit Of Zing

Standard

Strawberry Sauce With A Bit Of Zing

I couldn’t resist.  At Albertsons, they were selling, (while they lasted), a pound of California strawberries for such a good price that I bought more than what I, one person, should have.  So, besides eating them just plain, I can make some of my fabulous European styled jam; I can freeze them; I can make crisps, etc.; or I can eat them quick and easy this very special way. This sauce is delicious and just right to satisfy a sweet tooth at anytime of the day or night.  You can serve it with pancakes, ice cream, yogurt, puddings, pound cake, or pick at it just plain.

Ingredients:

1 lb. of fresh strawberries sliced or thriced

1 tsp. lemon juice

1 tsp. lemon zest

2 tablespoons brown sugar (I used the raw kind) divided in 2 batches

1/3 C. balsamic vinegar (I add just a wee bit of rice vinegar to this)

Instructions:

In a saucepan add the vinegar, 1 Tbsp. sugar and lemon juice.  Simmer over medium heat until thickened, about 4 minutes.

Place strawberries in a pretty bowl and add the other 1 Tbsp. sugar, lemon zest, and lightly toss. I actually pick up the bowl and give it several up and down shakes.

Add the sauce when a bit cooled to the strawberries, lightly toss again and enjoy. (I find that this sauce is even better if it sits in the frig for a couple of hours.)
