Strawberry syrup

I found some frozen strawberries in my freezer. I had purchased on discount some yellow pound cake, and I had a thought... strawberry short cake. But I didn't have enough strawberries to go around to the whole family. It was only like a cup of strawberries. So I had this great idea. "Make a syrup/jelly for and it should be yummy!" So that's what I did.


1-2 cups of strawberries rough chop
4 cups water
2 cups sugar
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tsp corn starch and cold water

add the water, and sugar to the strawberries in the small sauce pan. bring to a boil. add the balsamic vinegar and corn starch/cold water mixture. stir until thickened about 10 minutes. Serve on short cakes, pancakes, pound cake or whatever.

This was heavenly. I have never used balsamic vinegar in my strawberry dishes, but from now on, it's a must!

I served this on sliced pound cake with whipped cream.
