Happy 143th Birthday Canada!
To kick start my 4 day long weekend, I made simple pancakes for breakfast with fresh strawberry balsamic sauce. A red and white breakfast to kick start the celebration!
Strawberry Balsamic Sauce
The list of ingredients are for rough reference only. Don't forget to taste, taste, taste and adjust the amount to your liking.
2 cups of strawberries, hulled and diced
1 to 2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp of balsamic glaze/reduction
On medium heat cook strawberries and sugar in a saucepan for about 5 minutes until berries become bruised and juice releases. Lower the heat and simmer for another 10 minutes or until the juice reduces to a syrupy consistency. Stir occasionally to avoid burning at the bottom. Add balsamic glaze and stir. Serve with pancakes or waffles with a dollop of whipped cream.
