NEWS Recipe The balsamic reduction is one of the best way to accompaign our plates. Thanks to its versatility and chemical properties, the Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI can be turned into a delicious balsamic reduction. It is known how the balsamic vinegar is serviceable in many recipes, from salty to dessert dishes. Let's find out how to make a perfect balsamic reduction!

There are several recipes to make the reduction of balsamic vinegar. We have the traditional method, where vinegar is put in a pan together with a certain amount of spice, sugar or honey and it is reduced to the fire. Afterwards it is filtered and allowed to cool in order to obtain the perfect consistency that makes it a glaze or cream of vinegar. Keep in mind that its flavor must be sweet, because then it will be the sugar to give it the typical flavor of glaze and especially the consistency. The other way is much simpler and more than a reduction is a vinegar icing, ready in few minutes. For this preparation, the balsamic vinegar is added to the baking pot and tied with a spoon full of starch, mixed with a glass of water. Now we are going to explain in detail the latter recipe for reducing balsamic vinegar.

Ingredients:

300 ml of  Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI or if you prefere Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI Organic, 1 spoon potato starch 1 cup of cold water

Preparation:

Put the vinegar in a pot and bring to the boil. Meanwhile pour the starch into a cup and fill it with water. Stir the starch and the water with your finger. This only serves to mix but not to melt the starch (because it does not melt in cold water).
Now take a wooden spoon with your left hand, while with the right keep holding the cup with the compound that will tie our icing. Continue to mix the water and pour it into the saucepan with the vinegar that is boiling. Mix the vinegar until finish the whole mixture. Remove balsamic vinegar icing from the heat, but before you can use it cool it.
