Blackberry DBV Reduction to use for pork chicken

Gettysburg Olive Oil Co.

2 cups of balsamic vinegar

  1. Place the balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan and cook over medium low heat until the vinegar has reduced to at least half of the original amount (about 30 minutes for 2 cups of vinegar to reduce to 1 cup). For a concentrated but still liquid balsamic sauce you can cook it until it reduces by half. For a thicker glaze type sauce cook it until it’s reduced to ½ cup (1/4 of the original volume).
  2. As soon as the balsamic reduction reaches the consistency and concentration level that you prefer, remove it from the heat, and let it cool down. Place in container or bottle and use as needed.

Use to grill chicken or pork

Another use for blackberry DBV is to drizzle over a fresh garden salad or spinach salad!
