Balsamic Glaze Recipe


  • 1 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar


  1. Pour the balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan.
  2. Add the brown sugar and stir until it is dissolved.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.
  4. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer, stirring occasionally. It should take about 15-20 minutes for the mixture to reduce by half and become syrupy.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the balsamic glaze cool. It will continue to thicken as it cools.

Note: This recipe will produce more than needed for two servings of Caprese Skewers. Store the leftover balsamic glaze in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will keep for several weeks and can be used in other recipes or as a dressing or drizzle for salads and roasted vegetables.
