Balsamic raspberries

The big theme lately is recipes so easy that they are barely even legit. This one totally fits into that mold--balsamic raspberries are a great summer fruit dessert and have a non-cloyingly sweet, elusive flavor. I asked Ryan what he thought the flavor on the raspberries was and he thought about it for a minute and then guessed "chocolate?" So it's hard to pin down but it is lovely. You can also slice up strawberries and do the same with them.

I tossed about 12 ounces of fresh raspberries with 2 tablespoons good balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Let them macerate for 20 minutes.I served the raspberries over small scoops of vanilla yogurt. They'd also be great over ricotta drizzed with honey, or greek-style yogurt.
