Mom Tips

Aceto Balsamic is a very special Italian product. O Traditional balsamic vinegar, or DOP, is a product that is related to wine, as its only ingredient is grapes. It is a product that enhances the flavor of food and is far from common vinegar. The product we generally have at home (industrialized imitation of real Aceto balsamico di Modena) is far from being real Aceto balsamico.

Approximate recipe yield is 4 servings.
