Instructions

  1. Place a saucepan on the stove and add 1 cup of organic balsamic vinegar.
  2. Turn the heat to medium and bring the saucepan to a boil. As soon as it starts boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer.
  3. Simmer on low until cooked down, thicker and about 75% reduced. Typically, one cup of organic balsamic vinegar makes about ¼ cup of balsamic reduction. Ensure to stay around and stir from time to time.
  4. Drizzle on fresh veggies, roasted veggies, salads, bread, meat, and fish. Enjoy!

Notes

I prefer to use organic balsamic vinegar when making homemade balsamic reduction because I want high-quality vinegar.

I generally get ¼ cup balsamic glaze from one cup of balsamic vinegar. If you simmer the vinegar to about 50% reduction and are OK with the thickness, you can stop the cooking. Also, remember it will thicken after it cools, so don’t simmer it to dry out completely. Listen, do not fret over this, you can easily thin out a very thick balsamic glaze with few drops to spoonful of organic balsamic vinegar. Equally, do not make it too loose.
