Ice Cream with Strawberries and Balsamic Vinegar

Gelato e Fragole con Aceto Balsamico

Serves 4

Ice cream topped with balsamic vinegar seems strange but it is quite good and quite the dessert in Emilia Romagna. Better than hot fudge sauce any day!


1 cup sliced strawberries

1 cup sliced peaches

6 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Vanilla ice cream, store bought or homemade


In a bowl mix the berries and peaches with the vinegar and allow to marinate for 1 hour at room temperature.

Spoon ice cream into each of 4 parfait glasses and top each with some of the fruit mixture.
