Balsamic vinegar



Balsamic vinegar

Balsamic vinegar is a specialty-use item. Most store-bought balsamics are really merely red wine vinegar with a little caramel added for color. Bottles of balsamic vinegar made this way tend to run about $4-6. True balsamic vinegar is something significantly rarer and is made in a very time-consuming process - balsamic vinegars are aged in barrels much like wines, and the best vinegars come out a minimum of 25 years later. Their consistency is much like molasses, being very thick and syrupy. They are slightly sweet, and often come in multiple grades. For example, Cavalli balsamics are graded Red, Silver, and Gold, with Red being aged 25 years, Silver being aged 50, and Gold being aged 75 years. They are extremely expensive, with the oldest bottles costing upwards of $200 for a 3H fl. oz. bottle. Some "young" balsamics are only aged a few years, and are significantly cheaper as a result.
