  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar


  • Combine balsamic vinegar and brown sugar in a small saucepan.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, over low heat for about 4 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and simmer for 8 minutes or until reduced by about one-third. If you want a thick glaze, reduce a little longer. The glaze should coat the back of a spoon. 
    Cool, put into a bottle and store in the refrigerator.


Don’t over-reduce the vinegar and sugar; you will end up with a mixture which is too thick to drizzle and is toffee-like.
The vinegar fumes are fairly strong so be sure to use your exhaust fan.
If your brown sugar becomes rock hard, place a piece of bread in the container overnight. Gluten-free bread also works well.
