Balsamic Glaze is just a fancy way of saying reduced down Balsamic vinegar. It's a super simple way to add lots of flavor to a dish with out adding lots of extra calories or fat. I make this every couple of weeks and then just leave it in the fridge to use as a dip for raw veggies or drizzled on salad. It's also a great way to add a little zing to some simply grilled fish or chicken. And every now and then if I'm having a little sweet tooth, I'll mix some balsamic glaze with some berries and spoon it over vanilla ice cream:). I know that often times people will little bit of sugar to balsamic glaze to sweeten it up a bit more, but I find it sweet enough with out the addition of extra sugar. I really like the tangy-sweet-and-sour flavor that it has just the way it is!
