Without the fat. From a recipe on A La Carte. Note again zaar wants at least 2 ingredients. Drink the wine, reduce the vinegar, wine is optional.. hick. Why I posted this? The one I found required butter. You don't need it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the vinegar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. Boil vinegar until you reach a syrup. The bubbles will change as you do this until it seems as if you are boiling sugar.
  3. DO NOT OVER REDUCE. You can burn it. Check by removing a drop or two and cooling quickly.
  4. Cool in the saucepan. Bottle and serve with a small spoon.
  5. Drink the wine after. You want your wits about you when reducing something.

This was so good on our caprese salad. Took longer than I thought to get to a syrup but was so good.

I do this all the time. You are left with a rich sweet reduction that is perfect for salad and or fruit (even Ice cream)
