Fruit for Dessert
We have had a lot of sweets around the house for the last month or so with Easter baskets, birthday party gift bags coming home, and a recent trip to Jungle Jim's in Cincinnati with Thomas and Brennan. They chose several international sweets that we've been enjoying a little at a time.
But it's not often that we eat real dessert after a family meal.
What we've been doing instead each night is enjoying fresh fruit with flavored Balsamic vinegars.
I shared on our family blog that we have a new Olive Oil and Balsamic store in town.
Our favorite fruits to dip in Balsamic are fresh strawberries and fresh pineapple.
With strawberries we like the Fig Balsamic. I chose that one the first time I went to our local store. I absolutely loved it.
With pineapple we like Thomas's choice - Cinnamon Pear. Mmmm.
While fancy Balsamics are certainly not necessary to dress up fresh fruit, it sure makes it fun and more like dessert for our family!
