Balsamic Vinegar Reduction

Morgan Shepard

We used our 8-year aged organic balsamic vinegar to make a luscious reduction. No need to add sugar or other ingredients, we slowly simmer the vinegar for 60 minutes over a low heat.  Bursting with complex, natural flavors coming from the various woods the vinegar ages in, we drizzled our reduction on Apple Walnut Crostoni. A glaze on grilled steak or chops, dress steamed or roasted veggies, top fresh avocado slices & shaved fennel or on spring greens; the delicious & healthy combinations are endless!

Easy Directions

  1. In a medium sauce pan, add balsamic vinegar
  2. Simmer over medium heat 10-15 minutes or until vinegar begins to bubble
  3. Stir slowly & reduce heat to low for 45 minutes until vinegar thickens & reduces
  4. Place a spoon in the reduction, if vinegar coats the spoon remove from the heat
  5. Set aside & allow to cool
  6. Pour into air tight jar or container, store in cupboard away from heat, light & air. Vinegar can be re-heated over low heat, add a small amount of water if necessary.
