Take some Soy Delicious or Tofitti ice cream (or just regular dairy ice cream if you are vegetarian) and sprinkle baslamic vinegar on it. YUM!!

sprite is right about this one...



Balsamic is sweet and rich and tangy, and goes beautifully on ice cream

If you're going to do this, make sure you get really good balsamic vinegar. That cheap ass grocery store stuff doesn't really cut it. One of these days, when I get around to indulging my foodie fantasies I'm going to splurge on a $50 bottle. That's the stuff to pour on ice cream, because it's all rich and syrupy. The balsamic on ice cream and/or strawberries is a tradition in Modena, the home of balsamic vinegar.

A friend had it in an upscale restaurant in New York and told me about it. I was a bit skeptical at first, but after tasting it found it to be delicious. Try serving this to guests... they can't figure it out!



It's important to note that the better quality the vinegar, the better the results. A good aged baslamic is very dark, thick, and almost sweet. The cheap store brand variety works, but not nearly as well.

this ranks right up there with all the weird food combinations that surprisingly work. like dill pickle and peanut butter sandwiches.

I love peanut butter and pickle sandwhiches!



Actually, I have had balsamic vinegar on strawberries. I've never thought about it for ice cream before.

take some good ripe sweet juicy strawberries, and simmer them with a good aged balsamic (not too much) and cook it till it's thick and syrup-y. pour THAT over your vanilla soy dream!!!



now we're cooking with gas!!

this reminds me of the time i went to a mexican restaurant with my mom and brother. (pre-veg days) we all ordered ice cream for dessert, served with "mexican chocolate" syrup on top. we took a taste and ummm... wierd. yep, this is unusual. what's so different about mexican chocolate. it's gross. bleh. try another taste. no it's familiar. i think it's... no. can't be. try another taste. yep. it's barbeque sauce. took the 3 of us to figure it out, my mom and i were really grossed out but my brother was thoroughly enjoying his (freak)



we called over the waiter and it turned out they use the same type squeeze bottle for bbq sauce and chocolate sauce and they got mixed up. they replaced them and the real one was excellent, but my brother was upset when the waiter took away the bbq sauce one, he liked that one better. (again, freak)

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way
