Balsamic Vinegar from Gourmet Factory Can Add the Perfect Touch to Your Mediterranean-inspired Meal
It may not come as a surprise to some that balsamic vinegar shares many similarities to fine wines. After all, they’re both made from grapes; they’re both fermented in wooden barrels; and like wine, the flavor of balsamic vinegar intensifies over time. Of course, you wouldn’t want to sip a glass of vinegar while socializing with friends, but this tasty, tangy, low-calorie condiment is far more versatile than a glass of cabernet sauvignon.
At Gourmet Factory, we offer premium balsamic vinegar under our Capatriti label. Sweet and fruity but with a counterbalance of mellow tartness and a dark, wine-like consistency, this product can add Mediterranean zip to a wide variety of meals and snacks. Sprinkle over fruits and cheeses, stir into soups, or blend with an equal amount of our extra virgin olive oil to create a healthy and delicious vinaigrette. But the versatility of our product doesn’t end there. You can also use balsamic vinegar:
- For marinating meats and tofu
- To add a touch of sweetness in chicken and vegetable braises
- Reduced to a syrup and drizzled over ice cream
- As a flavoring for a fizzy drink (purée with strawberries and add to seltzer or club soda)
- To decorate plates prior to serving
