Trader Joe’s Balsamic Glaze is made for us in Modena, Italy, home of some of the world’s best balsamic vinegar. It’s crafted using time honored methods, so it has the deep flavor and pungent aroma you expect. You can, of course, reduce balsamic vinegar over a flame to achieve a similar consistency, but that takes precious time and tends to increase the acidity of the vinegar. Our Balsamic Glaze is ready to use and it preserves an ideal balance of sweet and bitter. It’s made by combining concentrated grape must and balsamic vinegar, then using a special filtration process that results in the thicker consistency that makes this Glaze so versatile. Use it on salads, as a drizzle over grilled meat and fish, or as a dessert topping for fresh, summertime berries or vanilla ice cream. We’re selling each 8.5 fluid ounce bottle for $2.99, every day, making it a time saver and a money saver!
