Like Fine Wine, Only You Don’t Drink It

organic-balsamic-vinegarI’m talking about organic balsamic vinegar.  In culinary circles this substance is referred to as liquid gold.  Like fine wine balsamic vinegar is made with grape juice usually from Trebbiano white grapes that are then reduced to a fruity syrup whose flavor is enhanced the longer it is aged.  There are some that have been aged for as long as 100 + years.  The end result is a rich, viscous elixir with a complex flavor that balances the sweet and the sour and is considered to be one of the greatest condiments in the world.  8 oz of the Guerzoni Extravecchio Balsamic Vinegar of Modena can be purchased for $179.00 (see purely organic)
