Ready In:
1/4 cup


  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • Bring one cup of balsamic vinegar to a boil then turn down heat to simmer for 10 minutes. Balsamic vinegar should reduce to approx 1/4 cup drizzle over bruschetta if desired.
  • .* I don't add the 1 tbsp sugar when reducing as I don't like mine to sweet but feel free to use it if you prefer.

    Wow, who knew how easy that would be?! Thanks for posting the instructions. I used only raspberry balsamic vinegar and it reduced beautifully and concentrated the berry flavor very nicely. Drizzled over grilled chicken and roasted veggies and was delicious!

    This was too sweet for me and I did not use the sugar. Perhaps I let it reduce too much? Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    I was going to post this same recipe on here and found yours! I use my reduction for drizzling over my version of insalata caprese (halved grape tomatoes, sliced fresh mozzerella and chopped fresh basil) for a quick and tasty lunch! Yummm!! Your time for reducing is spot-on. Thanks for sharing!


Hi it's fun to be part of RecipeZaar! I work full time and in my spare time I like to experiment in the kitchen. I also enjoy small hikes, biking and the outdoors. I look forward to travelling to new destinations in the future. It is always nice to try different tastes from different restaurants. I enjoy trying to recreate some of the memorable meals I have shared with my husband. He is more than willing to attempt any of my kitchen creations. I am an avid cookbook collector and my husband teases that I could open my own library! I guess I am always seeking that "perfect recipe". I have found many great recipes here on Zaar and I think some of the greatest cooks are on this site!! I hope you enjoy the recipes that I share with you. Have fun! Decadent1
