The strawberry season is fully swinging and that I certainly enjoyed it. Last year I attempted roasting strawberries for the primary time with great results and that I thought a roasted strawberry frozen dessert would be an honest idea. Roasting strawberries seems to concentrate and intensify their flavor and when roasted they release their juices, which become nice and syrupy and good. When brooding about the concentrated taste of the strawberry, the mixture of strawberry and balsamic vinegar came to mind, as a touch of balsamic vinegar also helps to bring out the natural taste of the strawberry. As for the recipe, I started with my standard frozen dessert base and added the roasted balsamic strawberries, so it had been quite simple. after I roast the strawberries, I put them on a sheet of aluminum foil and fold the perimeters to form sure I catch all the strawberry juices that are released – the roasted balsamic strawberry frozen dessert was so good! I experimented with the number of egg yolks I exploit in my frozen dessert and that I discovered that the more I exploit, the creamier the frozen dessert is and now I used 3 egg yolks, and also the frozen dessert was good and smooth and creamy. The strawberry flavor of the frozen dessert was so intense and clear and lively and good! This was easily the most effective strawberry frozen dessert I’ve got ever eaten and that I will certainly make more soon.
