|Strawberries, marshmallows and raspberries |
were great for dipping
I am also obsessed with balsamic vinegar. One of those fancy places where you can taste a ton of different olive oils and vinegars just opened up in the Annapolis Town Center, near the Whole Foods where I do my grocery shopping, so of course the other weekend Scott and I had stopped in and we picked a couple of things up. The place is called Cleo's Fine Oils & Vinegars and one of the vinegars we got is a 25 year old balsamic. It is the perfect balance of sweet and sour, and it goes great on pretty much everything. Drizzle it on pasta? Check. Marinate chicken? Check. Put on ice cream? Check.

ready to start whipping
I served this with strawberries, marshmallows and raspberries, but it would go well with lots of fruits as well as sponge cake and cookies. I have a feeling pretzels would also be good with this.
