Strawberry Sauce

This strawberry sauce is amazing with pies, cakes, cheesecakes and, for the lazy ones, with ice cream. Last summer we made this sauce many times, people love it. It has the greatest impact when it's on cheesecake, it is like they were made for each other.

I remember the first time we came across the recipe we were very proud that we get to use balsamic vinegar in a dessert recipe. :)

For 500 g of strawberries we used 1/2 cup of sugar (1 part muscovado sugar and 3 parts white sugar for a special touch), 2 tbsp water and 1 tsp balsamic vinegar. Combine all these ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer, then let it simmer on low heat for 15 minutes.

Don't worry, we did wash the fruits after we took the picture!:)
I a bowl mix 1 tbsp of cornstarch with 2 tbsp water and add to the pan. Cook for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. That's it!

You will find that if you use dark sugar the sauce tends to thicken more so you might consider adding the cornstarch is not necessary.

You can choose to blend it afterwards, but we like to have to fruits whole, it feels more natural and you don't have to wash the blender. :))
