Roasted strawberry sundaes are an easy way to spruce up your typical bowl of ice cream.  Fresh summer strawberries are roasted with balsamic vinegar and honey to create a dynamic and intensely flavored sauce.  The strawberry balsamic jam is drizzled over ice cream to provide a perfectly balanced dessert.  Feel free to add other ingredients like chocolate chips or toasted almonds.
