Balsamic Vinegar Reduction
- 20 ozs Balsamic Vinegar
Pour Balsamic Vinegar into a large sauté pan to maximize surface to balsamic ratio. Start at medium heat stirring occasionally, increasing stirring as it thickens. Do not overheat the Balsamic to the point of simmering or boiling—this is a slow reduction. Target temp is a constant 190 degrees. 68 ounces will reduce to approximately 15 oz. (lasts forever and worth every minute) Store in the fridge in a squeeze-bottle and it will become thicker and more viscous over time.
Serving suggestions: Serve over hard cheeses, Caprese Salad or drizzle on chicken before roasting.
** Warning** as this reduces the vinegar odors can get intense; I prefer to do this on day with a cross-draft and the windows open.
