Default Oatmeal pr0n

It ain't BBQ but it was tasty! Oatmeal with Fresh (in season) strawberries and 25 year old balsamic vinegar.

Gotta say, it would never have occurred to me to use balsamic vinegar with oatmeal and strawberries, but that sure looks good.

Just what is the thinking on the vinegar in there?

I was all about it at first, that is when I thought it was molasses.

Vinegar brings out the sweetness in strawberries. Keep in mind this is GOOD Balsamic Vinegar.

There are very few people that I would trust on this but you are one of them, so I will give it a try soon.

Looks good!


You know, many people misunderstand balsamic vinegar. This past Thanksgiving I made a brown sugar and balsamic reduction swirl ice cream.

Everyone said "Ewwww. Vinegar in ice cream?"

Until they tasted it.

And a few stubborn ones wouldn't even taste it. That's their loss.

Given the cost of GOOD balsamic, it's just as well! Leaves more for those who unnerstan'.

Wow, that is one heckuva bowl of oatmeal. Do you, uh, carry that bottle of balsamico with you? Where did you come up with that kinda vinegar?

I should add, that kind of balsamic vinegar, with that much age, is great on pastry, ice cream and fruit, quite classic stuff.

Very few Americans know what REAL Balsamic Vinegar is.
A real Balsamic Vinegar from Italy; and other places; can easily cost $20 - $100
per ounce....and more.
It is made in much the same way as fine wines are made.
It is nothing even close to the Balsamic vinegars we have in grocery stores here.

We have a vendor at one of the farmers markets. $15 for a 4 oz. bottle. Used very sparingly. It is good enough to sip it straight. And I have.
