        It Works....

        CG from Elgin, IL

        ....and is so good..!!! I think either white or the red balsamic works, a differance of taste. As for the sugar I think it helps, if you want the little kick, especially with the fresh cracked black pepper..!! Try this it will please..!!

        Easy and Delicious!

        JULIE REGGIO from Louisville, TN

        This recipe is easy and was a pleasure to make. The reduced balsamic vinegar makes a decadent glaze. The brown sugar on strawberries turns the strawberry juice into a beautiful semi-sweet strawberry glaze. Follow the directions and don't skip any ingredients! You're taste buds will be happy you stuck to the game plan! I can't wait to make this for friends! It looks great when served in Martini glasses too, with a small lemon slice on the rim of the glass!

        Why?

        Mrs.W from Central, NY

        Good recipe, but there's no reason to sweeten the balsamic before reducing--the act of reducing makes it quite sweet enough. Also no need to add brown sugar to strawberries if they're ripe already, but if they're not quite sweet, the balsamic will help them out. White balsamic vinegar is even nicer.
