Balsamic vinegar (Italian: aceto balsamico) is a very dark, concentrated, and intensely flavoured vinegar originating in Italy, made wholly or partially from grape must. Balsamic vinegar is delicious drizzled over salads, bread, cheese as well as on fresh fruit such as strawberries and pears and on plain crema (custard) gelato.
Balsamic vinegar also holds onto its spicy kick, balancing the rich flavor of meat, poultry, and fish, and adding welcome acidity to vegetables. Some Italians even toss back balsamic vinegar as a tonic, sometimes mixed with a bit of water.
