Total Time15 mins
Servings: 6 servings
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
- ¼ cup honey see note
Place a small saucepan over low-medium heat and turn on the ventilation fan if you have one.
Add balsamic vinegar and honey.
Once the mixture starts to bubble, reduce heat to low.
Simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the glaze coats the back of a spoon.
Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
Drizzle or brush the reduction onto meat, seafood, vegetables or fruit as desired.
- The reduction yields about half of the original ingredient amounts.
- You can adjust the amount of honey up or down. Higher-end balsamic vinegar tends to be sweeter, requiring less honey.
- Alternatives to honey include simple syrup or maple syrup, although use light maple syrup to avoid overpowering the balsamic.
- Store the balsamic reduction in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid in the fridge. It’ll become quite thick when cold, so bring to lukewarm / room temperature before use.
