With summer finally arriving, fresh fruit is coming into season and I’m happy as a peach (pun intended). I’ve been eating them a lot for dessert or as a snack at lunch. When eating apricots one evening I thought – these would be great with a balsamic reduction! Now for those who haven’t tried balsamic reduction, it has a sweet-tart taste that enhances the sweet richness of fruit. Essentially, the combination of flavours play on each other to heighten each individual flavour palette. The balsamic reduction is great on top of fresh fruit like peaches, apricots, strawberries, blueberries, etc. Let’s get to this recipe so you can enjoy your summer fruit with a twist.
In a small pot, combine:
- 1 cup of balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup of sugar
Over medium-high heat, continually whisk for roughly 10-15 minutes or until you notice the balsamic has become a syrup texture.
Once it gets to a syrup consistency, let it cool off a bit, drizzle on top of fruit and enjoy!
