Balsamic Glaze is just a fancy way of saying reduced down Balsamic vinegar. It’s a super simple way to add lots of flavor to a dish with out adding lots of extra calories or fat.
I like to make this every once and a while and then just leave it in the fridge to use as a dip for raw veggies or drizzled on salad. It’s also a great way to add a little zing to some simply grilled fish or chicken. And, if I’m having a little sweet tooth, I’ll mix some balsamic glaze with some berries and spoon it over vanilla ice cream:).
The key with this glaze is to allow it to reduce down to less than half of what you started with. You want it to be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. The longer you let it simmer, the thicker it gets.
I’ll be sharing more ways to enjoy this balsamic glaze soon, so stay tuned!
Yield: Makes 1/4-1/3 cup
Prep Time: 2 minute
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 22 minutes
- 2 cups of Balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp honey
- Pour vinegar and honey into a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Once you've got a boil, reduce the heat and allow to simmer for about 20-30 minutes or until the vingar has become thick enough to coat the back of a spoon (you should have about 1/4-1/3 cup of glaze when it's done).
- Remove from heat and allow to cool. Store in a container with a lid and pop it in the fridge. It should last you a few weeks.
