How To: Make Reduced Balsamic Glaze


An easy DIY recipe for making balsamic glaze. It’s much more cost effective than the store bought versions and is great for drizzling on so many things!


  • 2 cups balsamic vinegar


  1. Pour vinegar into a small non-reactive sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat to low reduce the vinegar for about 30-40 minutes or until the vingar has become thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. You should end up with just more than 1/2 a cup.
  2. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Pour into an airtight container and store at either room temperature or in the fridge. If you do store it in the fridge don’t be alarmed if it hardens up a bit. Simply place the container into a mug of warm water and it will soften quickly.


It’s very important to keep a watchful eye when reducing the balsamic so it doesn’t over reduce and burn.
