Strawberry Balsamic Shellac

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

Whether you use this as a drizzle over vanilla ice cream or brush it over a roasting chicken, this sauce adapted from Put ‘Em Up! Fruit by Sherri Brooks Vinton will find a niche in your pantry. It makes a delicious addition to gift baskets too - make it in the early Summer when the fruit is ripe and local, can it and wait for the wide eyes on Christmas morning!

Ingredients

    2 lbs fresh, ripe strawberries, pureed
    ⅓ cup water
    1 cup brown sugar
    ¾ cup red wine (I used a dry Shiraz)
    2 tbsp brandy (optional but nice)
    ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
    generous pinch black pepper
    ¼ tsp sea salt

Directions

Combine the berries and water in a saucepan and place over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
Simmer, stirring often, for 10 minutes.
Add the sugar, wine and brandy and return to a boil.
Cook, stirring often, for 12 minutes.
Place a fine strainer over a bowl and pour the cooked mixture through, discarding the solids.
Return the strained mixture to the (clean) pot, stir in the vinegar, pepper and salt and simmer for 30-40 minutes, until it coats the back of a spoon.
Process in a waterbath for 15 minutes.

Serving Size: Makes about 1 ½ cups, 24 tbsp
