I can’t believe I’ve never made a Balsamic Glaze until now. I guess I didn’t realize what I’d been missing out on!
It all started when I went to my favorite pizza joint, they serve up the best gluten free pizzas!
I decided to try a new pizza from their menu, an Arugula Pizza in which they drizzled a Balsamic Glaze lightly over the top of it.
I took one bite of this and I was in foodie heaven!
The next day I went to work on how to make this yummy semi-sweet glaze.
It’s actually pretty simple.
Just take 1 1/2 cups Balsamic Vinegar + 1 1/2 Tbs Honey (you can add more honey if you like it super sweet).
Bring it to a boil in a medium saucepan, reduce the heat, and simmer 20-30 minutes until glaze is reduced by half.
The glaze should coat the back of a spoon when it’s done. The longer you let it cool the thicker it will get.
Pour it into a glass sealed jar and refrigerate. I prefer these cute little Mason Jars for storing sauces and dressings like this.
This will keep in the fridge up to 2 weeks, that is if it sits in there that long. It’s never lasted that long in my house. I put this on salads, pizza, you name it!
