Strawberry Balsamic Syrup #SundaySupper

Summer bounty slips away in a blink of an eye. So we better preserve it while we can! Pun intended of course!

How do you save the summer harvest? Do you can, pickle, freeze or dehydrate?

I like to freeze vegetables for use year-round. Extra string beans, carrots, corn on the cob and bell peppers find their way into soups and stews when I need them most.
Complete soup kits come in handy for quick meals in the dead of winter.

Fruit freezes well too. Frozen strawberries, blueberries and raspberries perk up any dish when fresh are not available. I’ve called on my frozen berry stash for drinks, desserts and sauces.

So for this Sunday Supper event, I took different route.

Sweet, fruity syrup. Strawberry Balsamic Syrup to be exact.

Strawberries and balsamic vinegar blend into an amazing taste experience. Sweet and tart flavors dance on your tongue. Delicious!
Strawberry Balsamic Syrup adds a touch of elegance to pancakes and waffles. Kick your ice cream sundae up a notch! Drizzle it on pork chops and chicken.
