HEALTH TIP OF THE WEEK
Sweet dessert: Strawberry balsamic sorbet
For a refreshing dessert, try strawberry balsamic sorbet.
Simmer 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar in a nonaluminum saucepan over medium-low heat. Heat until reduced by half. Process 4 cups hulled, halved strawberries in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pass puree through a fine-mesh sieve over a bowl. Discard solids and add your prepared balsamic reduction plus 1 tablespoon dark honey. Stir, cover and refrigerate until cold. Freeze the mixture in an ice-cream maker, according to the manufacturer's instructions. Store in the freezer until ready to serve, up to 2 days. Spoon into individual bowls and garnish with chopped strawberries.
