If you’ve been following my blog posts, you’ll have noticed that an item I use very often in my dishes is balsamic vinegar. This vinegar’s rich dark color is a nice indication of its equally rich and dark flavor. It’s a flavor enhancer, base for sauces and marinades, and an extra dimension of flavor. It can be your secret ingredient in stir-fry dishes, and it can also work to lower the amount of salt needed in a dish. Many have grilled peaches or other stone fruits with this vinegar, and topped it with a delicious reduction which thickens and becomes even more powerful in flavor. My preference is aged balsamic, so I use a good quality 8 year and it really lasts a long time! I highly recommend adding this to your pantry as soon as possible.
