Grilled Honey Balsamic Strawberry Sundaes
- 1 Pint Fresh Strawberries
- 2 Tbsp Honey
- 2 Tbsp. Aged Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 Tbsp Butter
- Vanilla Ice Cream (Or use frozen yogurt to be even healthier)
- Ice Cream Bowls or Glass Dessert Dishes
- Aluminum Foil
- BBQ Grill
Wash, dry, and hull the fresh strawberries. Slice the strawberries into a bowl, about 1/2 inch thick. Add the honey and balsamic vinegar. Toss together to mix. Place the strawberry mixture in the middle of a large piece of aluminum foil. Add a 1 Tbsp. pat of butter, then fold the aluminum foil over to make a seal packet. Place on the grill for about 15 minutes, until the strawberries have become macerated and soft, and the liquid is slightly thickened. Remove from the grill and set aside to cool for about 20 min. Add 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream to each serving bowl. Drizzle some of the grilled strawberries and sauce over the ice cream. You can use the sauce warm, or store in a large canning jar or sealed container in the refrigerator until use.
