I am fascinated with recipes that combine both sweet and savory elements. I always watch Iron Chef and see them making all sorts of odd icecreams…bacon, basil, sweet potato…odd combinations of flavors that you would never consider using as a desert! Well, I received a sample of balsamic vinegar from The Artisanal Kitchen and was looking for a creative way to highlight it in a desert and came across the recipe below on AllRecipes.com. If you have never heard of The Artisanal Kitchen before, here is a little bit about them from their website:

This vinegar by itself has a very smooth and sweet flavor to it. Just a tad bit tangy but not sharp at all. It has a wonderful aroma to it as well and it is a natural pairing for fruit and cheese dishes. Here is the recipe I chose to try it in!
