Our golden pineapple balsamic from Modena, Italy is sweet and tart with the heady aroma of fresh ripe pineapple. This amazing, zesty balsamic is the perfect complement to fruit salads and fresh berries. It adds substantial flavor without discoloring salads. Try pairing with soy sauce, ginger and our Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil for an amazing marinade. This mixes well with a chicken salad topped with pineapple chunks. It’s delicious on grilled shrimp, peppers, and onions, adding tropical flavor to your dish! For dessert, try drizzling over fruits and ice cream or simply add to plain yogurt.
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 tot enhance steaks, fish, egg dishes -- even fresh fruit, and on ice creams, gelati and desserts. Buon Appetito!
