Balsamic Glaze (Balsamic Reduction)
Homemade balsamic glaze (balsamic reduction) is easy and cost-effective. All you need is balsamic vinegar and 15 minutes. Watch the recipe video above to see how thick my glaze gets.
Servings: 8 servings
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
- Optional sweetener: 1 to 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
Add the balsamic vinegar and any sweetener to a small pot. Bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the sauce coats the back of a spoon.
Use immediately or store in a sealed container in the fridge. It will continue to thicken up as it cools.
Remember that the sauce will continue to thicken as it cools. If you accidentally overcook it and it starts to harden, you can reheat it with a little bit of water to thin it back down.
