  1. 2 pints fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
  2. 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  3. 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (about 3 1/2 ounces)
  4. 1 1/2 cups balsamic vinegar
  5. 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  6. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. Pinch of ground allspice
  8. Pinch of ground cloves
  9. 2 pints vanilla ice cream
  1. In a medium bowl, sprinkle the strawberries with the granulated sugar. Let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour and up to 2 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°. Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet and toast for about 10 minutes, or until fragrant. Let cool slightly, then coarsely chop the nuts.
  3. In a nonreactive medium saucepan, combine the balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice and cloves. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook until reduced to 1/2 cup, 7 to 10 minutes. Pour into a bowl and refrigerate until chilled.
  4. Scoop the ice cream into 8 bowls. Top with the strawberries and their exuded liquid and drizzle with the balsamic glaze. Garnish with the chopped nuts and serve.
