was a bit doubtful about the balsamic vinegar but it turned out really well and so simple to make. Delicious, will be making this again.

Made this for dinner last night very easy & quick but seemd to end up with a bit too much liquid, may re think the method if I make it again, maybe cook to puree or omit water? Very tasty though

Really easy but tastes great over a good quality vanilla icecream.

Lovely way to jazz up plain ice-cream and great way to use up fruit thats not so fresh...

Loved it, so tasty! Easiest desert ever and my 6 and 3 yr old boys loved it too! This will be a regular dish from now on!

So tasty - the balsamic smells a bit alarming when poaching but the vinegary smell dies down, leaving a lovely depth to the blueberry sweetness.

I cooked them a few minutes longer than the recipe stated so they'd be soft enough to mash with a fork, to make a more liquidy ice cream sauce for my 2-year-old daughter. She loved it!
