Classic Balsamic Glaze 220g
Classic balsamic glaze is a versatile store cupboard ingredient you’ll find yourself reaching for again and again.
This 220g bottle is ideal for the home, as a little goes a long way. A larger 600g bottle of classic balsamic glaze is also available.
The balsamic glaze is made from concentrated grape must blended with an aged balsamic vinegar. This mixture is reduced even further to form a thick glaze with a rich, caramelised flavour. The glaze is balanced with a mild acidity – so it’s not as sharp as a vinegar, nor too syrupy sweet.
Drizzle a little balsamic glaze over fresh strawberries or ice cream. Try adding a few drops to roasted vegetables, salads, grilled meats and fish. Or even dot the glaze around a charcuterie board. Classic balsamic glaze also works particularly well paired with meaty fish such as tuna and swordfish.
Officinae Defrutum balsamic vinegars and condiments are made on a family-run farm in Modena, in the heart of the Emilia-Romagna region. They are made only with Trebbiano and Lambrusco grapes that are grown in the farm’s surrounding vineyards, so the entire production is closed cycle. Emilia-Romagna’s climate of extremes – very hot summers and freezing winters – provides the best conditions for fermenting and maturing balsamic vinegar. The production and ageing methods have been passed down through four generations of balsamic vinegar makers.
Ingredients: concentrated grape must, Balsamic Vinegar of Modena (wine vinegar, cooked grape must) (25%), modified starch. Contains sulphites.
