I have seen a few recipes around that require caramelised balsamic vinegar so I popped into a deli to pick up a bottle. It was quite expensive. There is a bottle of good balsamic vinegar already in my pantry so I thought I would transform it into caramelised balsamic on my own.
It takes no time to make and I’m sure will last for a long time in a sterilised jar. Strawberries are in season so I dipped one in to taste test and it passed with flying colours. Yum Yum!
Olive oil can be added to the caramelised balsamic to dunk bread. And it will be lovely in salads.
4 tablespoons good quality balsamic vinegar
4 teaspoons sugar
In a small saucepan bring the balsamic vinegar to a boil. Add the sugar and give a quick stir then allow it to bubble away over low heat until reduced by half. Allow to cool.
