Balsamic glaze is a thick balsamic vinegar reduction that is great for salads, grilled veggies, proteins and many different dishes. Just a drizzle can transform a simple dish into something great. In Egypt, balsamic glaze is only available in big supermarkets and is usually a bit pricey. Therefore, it is practical to know how to prepare it at home, especially that all you need is regular balsamic vinegar and a little sweetener such as sugar. Some CairoCooking recipes that are great with a drizzle of balsamic glaze at the end: Avocado Caprese Salad Halloumi Tomato and Arugula Slicers Roasted Vegetable Platter Balsamic Rosemary Chicken Fillet
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar - الخل البلسمي
- 2 1/2 tablespoon sugar - سكر
Step by step
- Mix the balsamic vinegar with the sugar in a small pan and bring to boil over high heat. Lower the heat to medium- low and simmer until the mixture has reduced by half and thickened (around 20 minutes). It will thicken even more when it cools. Pour into a little jar and store it in the fridge.
