This 3-ingredient, fresh Strawberry Sauce has an unusual ingredient - balsamic vinegar! The result is a sweet and tangy sauce that you'll want to pile on everything from breakfast to snacks to desserts!
Hull strawberries and cut in halves or quarters, depending on size. Place berries in a 9 x 13 glass baking dish.
Sprinkle berries with sugar and drizzle vinegar on top. Carefully stir together.
Roast for 45 minutes or until vinegar is reduced, thickened and syrupy. Stir once while roasting. Cool completely and store covered in the refrigerator.
You can make this sauce in advance. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 10 days and up to 3 months in the freezer.
Frozen strawberries will work in this recipe but they might give off a bit of moisture as they roast. Extend the baking time by another 5-10 minutes if the sauce seems too thin at the 45 minute mark. It will continue to thicken as it cools.
This is also a great recipe for slightly overripe strawberries. After roasting, you'll never know they were a bit past their prime!
If you want to make a double batch, you can use two different baking dishes or use a single large sheet pan for twice the ingredients.
Balsamic vinegars vary greatly in flavor. You don't need to break the bank on an expensive bottle of vinegar for this recipe, but try to find an aged variety with a smooth taste. A quality vinegar makes a huge difference here.
