Easy Balsamic Roasted Strawberries are an intensely flavorful combination of sweet strawberries, tangy balsamic, and rich maple syrup. They roast into a lusciously jammy sauce that’s delicious spooned over cake, whipped ricotta, or vanilla ice cream.
Preheat oven to 350. Cut the tops off the strawberries, then cut them in half.
Place halved strawberries on a baking sheet. Drizzle maple syrup and balsamic vinegar over the strawberries. Add a dash of salt and toss until coated. Arrange strawberries in a single layer on the baking sheet.
Roast for 25-30 minutes, tossing once, halfway through.
Serve over whipped ricotta, ice cream, shortcake, pound cake, crostini, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, or to make an elevated PB&J.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can also freeze them for several months.
Arrange strawberries in a single layer on the baking sheet to allow for even roasting. Toss the strawberries once halfway through roasting to ensure they get evenly coated with the syrup. Roasting breathes new life into overripe or out of season strawberries.
