the first thing that came to mind was marinated, grilled mushrooms. i just made some the other night using raspberry balsamic, and i'll bet the floral one you have would "gild refined gold, paint the lily. to throw a perfume on the violet".

I remembered these Balsamic Strawberry & mascarpone tasting spoons, & thought they would make a nice party dish. You could have an Aphrodisiac tasting party.

Kayelle, it's a dark balsamic.

I drizzled some over a bowl of cherries last night. It was out of this world. I'm working on a glaze for Friday's meal. This vinegar also seems to pair well with maple syrup, so that may be a good start for my sauce.

Where did you find this vinegar? Did you infuse it yourself? I'm thinking white wine vinegar infused with violets....have you tried it on strawberries or blueberries?

CWS, I got it from this place: Violet Balsamic - Devo Olive Oil Store

I haven't tried it with any other berries yet.
