There are few times in life when you are totally taken by gourmet surprise! This was one of those times.
It is simple.
It is pretty.
And it takes EVERYONE by surprise!
Place one scoop of the best “homemade” vanilla ice cream you can find (I like Blue Bell) in a pretty dessert bowl.
Are you ready?
Drizzle a small amount of balsamic vinegar over the ice cream.
Obviously, better quality balsamic makes this dessert unforgettable (the owner at the aforementioned Italian restaurant used an eye dropper and carefully and very dramatically measured out 50 year old balsamic).
But even a mediocre quality balsamic will make a stratospheric dessert that is sure to surprise.
Try it. I dare you.
Be sure to build up the dessert as a surprise to your guests, have them guess what it is, and its sure to surprise AND please!
Oh yeah, when you try it tonight—and you will—be sure to tell me what you taste.
And the answer will not be balsamic.
An amazing chemical reaction happens when the balsamic meets the ice cream and produces a taste that is absolutely yummy!
By the way, did you know that stressed spelled backwards is desserts?
Question: What is your favorite dessert?
