*If using the Amoretti® Aged Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar, take 1 cup of the vinegar, bring it to a boil on a medium flame and then reduce the flame to a medium low and simmer until reduced in half. The consistency can be tested by seeing if the glaze coats the back of a spoon. Also, when boiling you can add a tablespoon of light brown sugar to reduce it faster. This balsamic reduction is a great glaze to go on salads, cheese boards etc.
