This Balsamic Reduction is so easy to make, and one that you will find endless uses for once it is sitting on your countertop just waiting for your next Caprese salad, pasta dish, chicken dinner, or anything you can think of that needs a sweet little zing!
All you need is some balsamic vinegar, and optional brown sugar. Once reduced, it will be safe sitting on your counter, covered, for up to a week for any of your dining pleasures! And believe me, I have been spooning this stuff all over everything!
Don’t buy the pre-made stuff, I looked at the ingredients and they usually contain sulfites. This stuff reduces in 20 minutes, and if you add some brown sugar it takes even less time to reduce down on your stovetop. If you want to keep it keto, use Truvia Brown Sugar Blend instead!
