Balsamic Vinegar Reduction

purchased balsamic.jpg

Cooking balsamic vinegar slowly, over low heat, will cause it to concentrate and thicken. It's delicious as a drizzle or glaze on many different foods.

The longer you cook it down, the thicker it will get. Depending on your time and preference, you’ll have about ½ to ¼ of the amount of balsamic you begin with. 

2 cups of BALSAMIC VINEGAR* (this will yield about ½ cup to 1 cup depending on the consistency you prefer)

Pour the balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan and cook over medium low heat until it has reduced by at least half (approximately 30 minutes) For an even thicker consistency, cook it until reduced to ½ cup (1/4 of the original amount)

Once the balsamic reduction reaches the consistency you prefer, remove it from the heat and let it cool.
