This is a recipe for my homemade Strawberry Vanilla Ice Cream with Balsamic Vinegar. I know it sounds crazy to put Balsamic Vinegar on Ice Cream. It took some convincing for me to try it as well, but I sure am glad I did! My family recently went on a vacation to Hilton Head, South Carolina. While we were there I found a little shop called the Oilerie . They primarily sold flavored olive oils, but the store had a Balsamic Vinegar that was aged 25 years. I bought a bottle and they asked if I had ever tried it on Vanilla Ice Cream or Strawberries. I had heard of it but never tried it. When I got home I was thinking of a way to use it and thought of this. I really enjoyed it! If you are ever in Hilton Head, check out the Oilerie! This place was awesome!! You can sample all of their oils. They will bottle & cork whatever you like on the spot. Very Cool Place!! Thanks for checking this out!! I hope you enjoy!!

You can also cook down the balsamic, which will make it a lot sweeter, and thicker.

I did make a reduction as well but I kinda enjoyed the tartness of the Balsamic straight out of the bottle.
