Strawberry Balsamic Compote
Paola Calciolari of Casa Forcello began her career as a pharmacist but her true passion was food. She took a gamble, leaving her secure job in order to produce typical condiments from Mantova, often employing her grandmother’s recipes. We’re glad she did. She makes her exceptional mostardas and compotes by sourcing locally harvested fruit only when in season, then slicing and candying them in their juices; it is a highly labor intensive process. They are extraordinarily fresh, flavorful and chunky.
Ripe, juicy strawberries are a natural match for rich, syrupy balsamic vinegar. This luscious compote is bright and fruity with a hint of acidity, and perfect for any season, especially springtime. 4.94 oz.
