Dipping fresh strawberries into the thick, rich, tangy balsamic glaze gives your taste buds a fun balance of sweet and tart. With less than 50 calories in 1 cup of fresh strawberries, it makes for a smart dessert or snack too. I love how easy it is to add flavor and nutrition to your life with fresh strawberries, and because Florida strawberries are available all winter long, you don't have to wait until summer to enjoy their sweet deliciousness!

In addition to being relatively low in sugar and calories, fresh strawberries are also a good source of vitamin C. It's true! Just 8 medium strawberries equal your daily requirement of vitamin C! Your entire day's requirement!! What a delicious way to ensure you are getting this important nutrient! Click here for 10 more reasons to eat strawberries by my friend Strawberry Sue.

This weekend the #SundaySupper Tastemakers are in the Winter Strawberry Capital of the World, Plant City, FL, with the Florida Strawberry Growers Association. We are staying at the Epicurean Hotel, a foodie dream destination that focuses on great food and wine, and we'll be dining at some of Tampa's finest restaurants such as Cask Social Kitchen, Ava, Elevage Restaurant, Edge, and Bern's Steak House.

In addition to all the amazing food and wine, we are also touring strawberry farms to learn everything there is to know about growing strawberries in Florida. Because we are all about fresh strawberries this weekend, the #SundaySupper Tastemakers developed a variety of recipes to share today! Scroll down past my recipe to visit all of the scrumptious strawberry recipes. You'll be able to plan a strawberry feast with all the different recipes!

If you haven't already done so, add fresh Florida strawberries to your grocery list and make up some of this sweet and tangy balsamic glaze for dipping! Balsamic Glaze is super easy to make and great to have on hand. It is the perfect compliment to sweet strawberries and also makes a great glaze for beef, chicken, and pork too!

Another tasty use for balsamic glaze is to drizzle over vanilla ice cream and top with fresh strawberries, of course. Sweet or savory, this glaze goes with just about everything!

I reduce the vinegar first before adding the sugar, so to get this glaze started pour 1 cup balsamic vinegar into a small skillet. I like to use a skillet to spread the vinegar out more over the heat source. This helps to make quick work of reducing the vinegar.

Heat the vinegar over medium heat for 5-10 minutes until it is reduced by about half and then add in 1/2 cup of sugar and a pinch of kosher salt.

Stir until sugar is dissolved and glaze thickens. Give it a taste and adjust as needed to suit your tastes. Allow to cool. The glaze will thicken even more as it cools and become a thick, rich and tangy glaze that is hard to resist. Grab a handful of strawberries and enjoy!
