Otherwise known as a healthy, yummy finishing sauce, reducing vinegar makes it sweeter and thicker– perfect for drizzling on veggies, meats, even fruit. Virtually any kind of food gets a boost from a vinegar reduction. You can try this trick with tons of different flavors of vinegar, including fig balsamic which is my personal favorite.
Friends, balsamic vinegar reduction is a little bit of culinary magic that transforms ordinary meals into amazing! And, it could not be easier. You only need ONE ingredient and a bit of time, and you will be rewarded with a thick, tangy finishing sauce that it delightful on all kinds of dishes. Try it over tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella for an amazing Caprese salad. Or drizzled over grilled or roasted veggies; I love it on roasted broccoli and cauliflower. This kind of syrup is yummy over meats, too, and can elevate chicken breast from ho hum to restaurant-quality.
You can buy this type of vinegar reduction in fancy olive oil and vinegar stores– or you can make it at home with the vinegar in your pantry.
