Learn how to make Balsamic Reduction with this simple method. It is a wonderful condiment that can add a completely new level of deliciousness to a range of savory and also sweet dishes.
It should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. You can also continue simmering to desired thickness. (Just watch out not to reduce it too much, as this results in a sort of balsamic caramel. This happened to me during my first attempt. I still liked it as ice cream drizzle ;)
Transfer the balsamic reduction into a clean small mason jar and store refrigerated for about 1 week.
Use balsamic reduction to drizzle on salad or as a base for salad dressing, as condiment for meat dishes like steak or chicken, in pesto dishes, on pizza, fruit salad or even ice cream!
Make sure you have the fan running, to prevent the vinegar smell from spreading into your entire house.
