In this post I am sharing how to make a balsamic glaze.

A Balsamic Glaze is simple to make. It’s a reduction of balsamic vinegar combined with sweetness to create a thick syrup type condiment. It’s perfect drizzled on caprese salad, roasted vegetables, bruschetta or meats adding wonderful flavor.

A lot of people love the flavor of balsamic vinegar. I’m not one of them but I do love a balsamic glaze. This delicious sauce is super easy to make.

It takes only two ingredients to make one of the most loved finishing sauces at home in your own kitchen.
