Sweet strawberries, tart balsamic, and vanilla ice cream make one great dessert. If you like, you can substitute 4 tsp. store-bought balsamic glaze for the homemade balsamic syrup.
Put a scoop of ice cream in each of 4 parfait glasses or bowls. Top each with about 1/4 cup strawberries and their juices, drizzle with about 1 tsp. balsamic syrup, and sprinkle with about 1/2 Tbs. pine nuts. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
This is precisely why we all scream for ice cream; what a surprise this dish was! Ill save plain ol hot fudge sundaes for winter. While strawberries are in season, Im making these.
Yum! LOVE this combination. It reminds me of my favorite "coupe" at Mario Batali's Otto pizzeria, except there they make it with olive oil gelato. You definitely have to watch the balsamic syrup to make sure it doesn't reduce too much, otherwise it can become sticky and hard like a reviewer noted.
