Ingredients

  • 1 Cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 3-4 tbsp Raw honey I used three

Instructions

  1. This is how it should look once it coats the spoon
  2. In a small pan that will not react to the vinegar and heat, (non reactive) on medium heat add the balsamic vinegar and the honey, once it began to boil simmer on a very low heat, low and slow uncovered,  stirring on occasion you must watch that it does not burn.  It should reduce to about a half a cup.

    Once the balsamic reduction coats the spoon it is done, it has so many uses you can drizzle it on ice cream, fruits of your choice, cake, chicken, avocado,  drizzle over a salad , add it to any dish it is endless. 

    Once cooled store in a mason jar and refrigerate.   If your balsamic reduction becomes to thick once you refrigerate it  you can add a little warm water and it will loosen it up and will not change the taste,  add about 1/2 tsp of hot water should loosen it up.

Recipe Notes

*To make sure your reduction is the consistency of molasses dip the spoon into the liquid and make sure the back of a spoon is covered and not runny the level of thickness of your balsamic reduction should be like molasses.
