  • 3  Tablespoons  good quality balsamic vinegar
  • baguette, cut into 1/4-inch slices

Directions

Place the strawberries in a small saucepan with sugar and thyme sprigs. Bring to a steady boil and cook until strawberries and liquid are thickened and coat the back of a spoon (about 30 minutes). Remove thyme springs and stir in balsamic vinegar. Let cool.

Strawberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Strawberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
