  • Reduced Balsamic Vinegar
    You can purchase reduced balsamic but it is easy to make! Place 1 cup vinegar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer and stir until it is reduced to a third (about 20 minutes). Cool to room temperature and pour into a squeeze bottle using a funnel. You can also write a love note on your bowl or plate with the vinegar.
