Raspberry Balsamic Ice Cream Sauce

A fantastic five ingredient sauce.  And I was in a bit of an odd mood when we filmed this...


2 1/2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon brown sugar

3/4 cup fresh raspberries

2 tablespoons good balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons Amaretto liqueur

3 bowlfuls good French vanilla ice cream


In a small skillet, melt butter and stir in brown sugar.  Add raspberries and cook, stirring and mashing for about 6 minutes.  Add balsamic and Amaretto and boil about 3 minutes, or until slightly reduced and syrupy.  Allow to cool before spooning over ice cream.  Serves about 3.
