Ginger & Honey ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic
Our Ginger & Honey ‘Special Reserve’ Aged Balsamic Vinegar is a real treat with a unique flavour profile. It works beautifully with sweet meats like pork, pancetta & duck, or as a dipper for a fruity panettone.
One key difference with this compared with other cheaper imitations is that we don’t use watery, thin balsamic vinegar; these are thick enough to use as a glaze but without the artificial sweeteners & thickeners.
We also don’t add a grain of sugar, caramel (E150) or sweetener anywhere in the process – all the sweetness comes from the passing of time & from the fruit itself. This is unlike any ‘supermarket balsamic’ or cheap, watery vinegars made with 40-50% sugar. This also means it’s ‘free’ on all the slimming plans we know of!
Neither do we do ‘reductions’ – cheaper vinegars that have been boiled to reduce them & make them thicker.
Instead, our Ginger & Honey ‘Special Reserve’ is a stunning, authentic aged balsamic from Modena, home of the World’s finest balsamic vinegars, aged for years in barrels until just the right balance of sweetness is attained & then infused with fruit to give the perfect explosion of flavours.
It’s versatile enough to use in cooking; a drizzle when cooking pancetta or roast pork will add an extra dimension of flavour that works beautifully. It’s also fab on sautéed greens & stir fries too. It won’t caramelise as easily as the fruit-based balsamic vinegars so is versatile enough to use in cooking; a drizzle when cooking pancetta or roast pork will add an extra dimension of flavour that works so beautifully; in fact, we use this on pork now instead of apple sauce.
Try a drizzle on thick greek yoghurt over pancakes, muesli or bircher for a morning kick. We use it on sautéed greens & stir fries as well.
This is an incredible partner to anything and you’ll only need a few drops to give a real richness.
