BALSAMIC GLAZE

Making a balsamic glaze is really easy. It’s just reducing balsamic vinegar. This is a basic recipe that can be used for so many things. Drizzle it over crostini, cheese, even on strawberries with ice cream.

Notes

I use this for savory dishes. Some recipes add sugar, honey, or maple syrup. I consider this a balsamic syrup that I would use in desserts, or when I want a sweet note in a dish.
