To Reduce Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 cup dark balsamic vinegar*
- 1. In a saucepan, cook balsamic vinegar over low heat for 20-25 minutes or until reduced to about half (1/2 cup), stirring occasionally. Be careful not to let the balsamic over reduce and burn.
- *This may make more balsamic vinegar than is needed for the Summeripe Peach Caprese skewers, feel free to add reduced balsamic vinegar to taste and store the rest of the balsamic reduction in a jar in the refrigerator for up to 6 months
