Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar
The first crisp apple of the fall is one of the great joys of heading into the colder seasons. Our Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar captures the delicate, sweet flavor of the juiciest apples, and combines it with premium balsamic vinegar, a perfect marriage of tart and sweet.
Use Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar to add a hint of apple aroma and flavor to any dish. This vinegar makes a lovely glaze for pork, chicken, and fish, whether on the grill or roasted in the oven. Combine Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar with Roasted Walnut Oil for a perfect vinaigrette for an apple-walnut-green salad!
Balsamic Vinegar is a delicious aged vinegar, prized for its sweet-tart, concentrated flavor. We offer you the very best Balsamic Vinegars that we import directly from the rolling hills of Modena, Italy, where true balsamic vinegars have been produced since the Middle Ages.
True balsamic vinegar is not made from wine, as you might expect, but rather from pressed, un-fermented Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes. The pressed grapes are simmered over an open flame, and reduced to a thick syrup. This sweet syrup is in turn fermented twice, then slowly aged and evaporated in a succession of smaller and smaller barrels, made from different aromatic woods. As the balsamic vinegar ages, moisture evaporates out, and the vinegar thickens and its complex flavors become more concentrated.
Balsamic Vinegar has many culinary uses, including salad dressings, dips, marinades, reductions and sauces. Try a splash of balsamic vinegar to enhance steaks, fish, egg dishes -- even fresh fruit, and on ice creams, gelati and desserts. Buon Appetito!
