10.08.18 Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena the Originale Recipe Recipe
NEWS Recipe Preparing this Balsamic Vinegar Recipe is very easy. With only one ingredient, patience and knowledge of centenarian traditions, in just 12 years you will have your Balsamic Vinegar ready to use.

Let’s begin by obtaining 500 kg of grapes, but not any grapes, it must be Trebbiano, Ancelotta, Lambrusco or selected from the disciplines indicated by the Production Rules, from which we will get the baked must, the ONLY INGREDIENT of this extraordinary recipe.

After squeezing the grapes, fill with must the boiler, bring the temperature to 90/95 degrees, the lively fire serves to avoid alcoholic fermentation; Cooking will allow water to evaporate and increase sugars. Let it bake until the must has been reduced by 50% of its initial volume.
Once the must has been cooked we have to wait for fermentation, it can start even after several months. Remember that the initial alcoholic fermentation that transforms sugars into alcohol changes into acetic fermentation where alcohol becomes Acetic Acid.

To best follow our balsamic vinegar recipe, it is essential to have a battery with minimum 5 barrels of different wood (1 barrel of 70lt wood of beech, 1 50lt of gelso, 1 40lt of ash, 1 by 30 lt. Robinia, 1 of 15lt. of Ginepro) you can add also 2/3 of Oak, Chestnut, Cherries, recommended in particular for small barrels. With a touch of magic make sure that the woods have a minimum of 4/5 years of seasoning, in the Modena aerea exist barrels masters famous all around the world.

Remember to wash and acetate the barrels before use.

Now we have all the ingredients to cook the Balsamic Vinegar Recipe and to get a great result, once you’ve filled the barrels, we have to put them in its natural pot “il solaio” (the slab), better known as the attic. Let it rest for at least 12 summers and 12 winters Modenesi. I recommend using only the alternating seasons Modenesi where moist and sunny summers bake the roofs of houses, and cold winters and snowy ones freeze them. To get a unique product from the inimitable features I recommend waiting for 25 years.

Get yourself a “Matraccio”, a “Saz”, a “Tragno”and remember that once a year you have to repeat the baking of the must, make “travasi”, “assaggi” and small corrections dictated by the centenarian traditions.

First tip: the rabbit can be served with various side dishes. You can prepare it with every type of vegetables but we recommend you to serve it with boiled potatoes which match perfectly with Balsamic Vinegar.

Second tip: to give a bittersweet note to the dish, we recommend you to add orange juice (use three ripe oranges) during cooking: the final taste will conquer your palate. We suggest you to fresh oranges than packaged juice, which does not possess the fresh and authentic taste guaranteed by the squeezing of the fruit.
 
Third tip: for the success of the dish is essential to use a good Balsamic Vinegar. We suggest you to use traditional balsamic of Modena POD aged over 25 years. Balsamic Vinegar is one of the most important ingredients of this dish and therefore it should be aged and better if POD.
