I know this combination might seem odd but I've been to Italy a few times and they pour balsamic vinegar over strawberries for dessert. With this special ingredient you don't taste the vinegar, but it makes the strawberries taste more vibrant so it's a perfect combination. The vinegar adds a sweet and sour twinge, you won't believe how sweet these strawberries taste, it's unbelievable! Strawberries also benefit from a touch of lemon juice to prop up their weak natural acidity. I am sure you will love theses brightly flavored popsicles too! I bought the white balsamic vinegar from Trader Joe's and also used it in this recipe.
- Wash and dry the strawberries.
- Place the strawberries and sugar in a food processor and pulse just until the mixture is finely chopped but still chunky; you don't want a smooth purée.
- Transfer to a bowl and stir in the balsamic vinegar and lemon juice.
- Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for 6 hours of overnight.
