    Balsamic vinegar mingles with butter and carmelized sugar to make a snappy glaze. Serve alongside roasted meats or poultry.

      The flavor of these will "blast your mouth" with the sweet-sour sauce. My wife's initial reaction was "delicious." I concur and will make it again. Just search for a way to eat an easily grown vegetable. This is a saved one and I will make it again. I may reduce the sauce next time to half as I think it would be enough for our taste. Enjoy!
