What to do with 25 year old balsamic?
I am at a complete loss. I have no idea what to do with it. We got it as a gift and I am excited to use it, but I just can't figure out what to do. I am open to any and all savory suggestions. This is for NYE tomorrow night. Just the hubs and I cooking at home.
Green salad with high quality greens, no iceberg. Skip the tomatoes if they're mealy/not vine-ripe. Some chopped Belgian endives optional, just some torn good greens will be fine. Toss with the best olive oil you have, fleur de sal, fresh ground pepper, and the balsamic vinegar to taste. Won't need much.
Simple poached fish. Drizzle a little on it after cooking before serving.
Sip it, all by itself.
Drizzle a little on vanilla ice cream. Dazzling.
These are just off the top of my head, various other uses...
All the above plus one more. In the summer cube watermelon. Add one drop to each cube. Looks cute and tastes wonderful!
