Strawberry-Balsamic Reduction

Well, it's been a hectic few weeks.  Between crazy work schedules, getting sick, Fur Rondy and what have you, it's been hard to motivate myself to blog!  Next week is Spring Break though, and I've already got a few recipes planned for the few days before I go on my SuperAwesomeTrip.  Now, on to the food!

This sauce is, to put it simply, amazing.  It's simple, easy to make, and delicious on just about anything.  Serve drizzled over roasted veggies, or top your ice-cream with it - you can't go wrong!  The only thing to be careful of is your vinegar.  This will make or break your sauce, so don't use the generic stuff.  Shell out a few extra bucks for something good.


1/3 c water
1/4 c honey
1/3 c balsamic vinegar
1 c chopped strawberries
2 T ruby port

Bring the water and vinegar to a boil.  Add honey, strawberries, and port.  Simmer until reduced by half.  Transfer to food processor and puree until smooth.
