    Sounds delicious, but I would never scrap any part of a yummy strawberry. I would, however, scrape it off and eat it! 🙂 Any other time a typo wouldn't be a problem, but that one little letter "e" made all the difference!

    Are you using the caramel colored balsamic? That is all I have on hand. My husband bought it while I was recuperating from an auto accident.

      Marileen, We prefer not to use balsamic with caramel color but it will work in a pinch. 🙂
