Blackberry and Blueberry Balsamic Spiced Syrup

19 06 2010
I just returned from another successful demo at the EVOO Marketplace. I came up with a few recipes using their new Wild Blueberry Balsamic Vinegar. I macerated some mixed berries in this spiced syrup and then served it over shortcakes topped with mascarpone cheese mixed with some EVOO Honey Ginger Balsamic Vinegar. It was delicious and a great summer dessert. This would also be great on pancakes, waffles or even ice cream.

2 cups blueberries

2 1/2 cups blackberries

1/2 cup EVOO Wild Blueberry Balsamic Vinegar

1/2 cup sugar

1 cinnamon stick

1 whole clove

1 cardamom pod

Bring berries, balsamic, sugar, spices and a pinch of sat to boil in a medium saucepan, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered until fruit is very soft, about 30 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and discard any remaining solids. Cool then refrigerate.
