How long does a wine reduction or balsamic reduction keep, and must they be refrigerated?

  1. Store it at room temperature for two or three months and serve on just about anything. It's great drizzled over seafood, poultry, steak and even cheese.


    2 cups (16 ounces) red wine

    2 tablespoons corn syrup

    Combine the wine and corn syrup in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil until reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 10 minutes.
    variations: Substitute 2 cups balsamic vinegar for the wine to make a balsamic reduction or 1 cup wine and 1 cup balsamic for 'balsamic wine reduction'.
