Better Balsamic Vinegar
|Back to the Notes Index|
If you can't afford the genuine Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale, you can greatly improve the much cheaper Balsamic Vinegar of Modena with the following method.
Place everything in a pot, stir it over low heat until the sugar has dissolved, and simmer it very slowly until it has reduced and you have one cup of liquid left.
When it's done, I urge you to sip a little from your original bottle, take a drink of water and then sip a little of your new brew.
Bottle the result and keep it somewhere cool and dark (refrigeration is unnecessary). Use it wherever balsamic vinegar is called for.
