Fresh Balsamic Strawberry Topping

It is strawberry picking season in Connecticut.  My son and I went yesterday and picked about 10 pounds of fresh strawberries.  There is nothing like the taste of fresh picked strawberries.  But, as usual, our enthusiasm for picking turned in to a need to use the strawberries before they go bad.  Luckily, I was sent the new cookbook Vegan Eats World by Terry Hope Romero.  She has a great recipe for Fresh Balsamic Strawberry Topping.

Vegan Eats World

Vegan Eats World is loaded with recipes like, Savory Baked Tofu, Sweet Potato-stuffed Paratha and Mexican Chocolate Torte.  I love that they have easy to find ingredients and such a variety of ethnic influences. This will be a go to cookbook.  You can find Vegan Eats World online and in local bookstores.  Terry Hope Romero is also the Author of the bestseller, Veganomics.

Fresh picked strawberries are amazing.  My son and I easily ate a pint each.  After that I made shortcakes, some simple strawberry Italian ice and I froze some for smoothies.
