Honeyed Wine Vinegar

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by evelynathens

From Aglaia Kremezi. Her attempt to create an interesting vinegar resembling balsamic vinegar. It has a deep flavour and a woody aroma, and makes an excellent addition to any salad or raw or cooked vegetables. 3-4 week standing time.

This is fabulous! It does resemble balsamic vinegar but better.It`s thick and syrupy. This bottle will will be gone in no time. Just a note that I used Lavender Honey by Kozmic Blues recipe #63539.
