Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: about 2 minutes
Grilling Time: 25 minutes
1/4 cup (50 mL) butter
2 squares unsweetened chocolate (1 oz/28 g each), chopped
2/3 cup (150 mL) granulated sugar
2 Ontario Eggs
1/3 cup (75 mL) all-purpose flour
3 cups (750 mL) chopped Ontario Strawberries
2 tbsp (25 mL) Ontario Honey
1 tbsp (15 mL) balsamic vinegar

Fresh Ontario Mint Leaves
Preheat barbecue on medium heat for 15 minutes to 350°F (180°C). Turn off one side of barbecue for indirect heat. Grease 10-inch (25 cm) cast iron skillet.
Meanwhile, in medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter and chocolate, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat. Whisk in sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, whisking until smooth. Stir in flour and salt; mix well. Fold in 1-1/4 cups (300 mL) of the strawberries. Spread mixture evenly in skillet. Place skillet on unheated side of barbecue. Cook, covered until set, 20 to 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, combine remaining strawberries, honey and vinegar; set aside.
Cut warm brownie into wedges. Serve with scoop of ice cream (if using), strawberry mixture and mint leaves.
Tip: The butter and chocolate mixture can also be melted on the barbecue or in microwave.
