Balsamic vinegar is an intensely concentrated grape vinegar, originating from Italy. It's delicious as is, but when reduced down, it adds the most amazing burst of flavor to any dish. We love it drizzled over juicy, fresh tomatoes, creamy hummus, or on salads containing crisp greens.

Directions

Click:

  1. To a small saucepan, add the balsamic vinegar, and sugar if using, and bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. When it starts to boil, reduce the temperature to maintain a simmer.
  3. Cook the vinegar down, stirring occasionally until it's about a third of the original volume, which should take about 13 - 15 minutes.
  4. Allow the reduction to cool completely before transferring to a glass jar. The reduction will continue to thicken as it cools. Enjoy!

Storage

  • Keep away from direct light in a cool dry area for up to 1 week, or in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
