I tasted once on a wine market and fell in love with it immediately. It was so yummy! I didn't want to spend twenty-some dollars for a small bottle, especially, that I didn't know what kind of dish I could use it with.
I checked the ingredients - as always - and found it quite simple. So, I came home and made it.
Now I use it all the time. It's perfect with savoury salads with fruit or with special desserts. It's also a great kitchen gift.
And, not at last, it costs a fraction of the shop price.
good quality balsamic vinegar
1 cinnamon stick
1 vanilla pod
Place cinnamon stick and vanilla pod into a dark bottle and fill it up with balsamic vinegar. Cover tightly.
Leave the bottle in a dark place for 2-3 weeks then you can use it. Longer you let it infuse, more intense flavour you get.
When it's run out you can fill it up again.
