The Mediterranean is a beautiful place, with hot, sunny days, and rich soils that make it an ideal place for growing grapes, olives, and citrus fruits. Sweet and mild like its American cousin, the Meyer Lemon, the Sicilian Lemon does not have a bitingly tart taste.
Our Grilled Lemon White Balsamic Vinegar is tangy and light with a hint of grilled goodness. It’s wonderful as a vinaigrette throughout the year and pairs nicely with the flavors of tomato, cucumber, avocado, and feta.
Try it with grilled lamb and chicken or drizzled fish or veggies before roasting. Add a splash to chicken piccata and other pasta dishes for a bit of depth and interest.
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!
