The Caramelised Strawberry Balsamic is made in the same way as the Caramelised Raspberry Balsamic with no thickeners, no starches and it's perfect for gluten-free cooking.
I thought I'd best sample this first by the spoonful, and I'll be honest- I had about 4. This was just as moreish as the raspberry version, with a great balance of sweetness and tartness. It had a slightly more sour flavour than the raspberry balsamic, which actually works really well to balance any sweetness in whatever you may choose to serve it up with.
Seeing as I used the raspberry version in a savoury dish, I thought I'd mix it up a bit and make the most of this strawberry balsamic in a sweet concoction. The guys at LiraH swear by their strawberry balsamic drizzled on vanilla ice cream, so I've gone one up and dished it up with pancakes served with fresh berries, banana and natural greek yoghurt. Usually when I make this, I glug maple syrup all over it and then fight a sugar high for the next couple of hours, but after this tasting I think I will change my ways.
Even though I had already sampled the strawberry balsamic, I still felt a touch odd drizzling what is ultimately vinegar on my pancakes, but I am so glad I did. Sticky, sweet and a touch sour, this balsamic made my homemade breakfast stunning. It really is amazing what you can create with a few good ingredients, and adding this caramelised strawberry balsamic really took this dish up a notch.
There are a bunch of other caramelised balsamic flavours available from LiraH including apple balsamic, blackcurrant balsamic, lemongrass balsamic, ginger balsamic and if that's all getting a bit too fruity for your needs, there is a good old plain balsamic on offer too.
