Can you remember a time before balsamic vinegar found its way into every salad dressing and sauce served at every restaurant everywhere? Talk about fifteen minutes of fame! Balsamic has enjoyed a decade of fame, or more, and with good reason. A splash on slices of fresh tomato and mozzarella cheese, or added right at the end of cooking a vegetable soup, tickles your taste buds and makes them take notice of what's in your mouth. It's certainly my go-to vinegar. Real balsamic is unbelieveably expensive, so balsamic condiment is what most of us buy. The best balsamic condiment tastes sweet and mellow. I could eat it by the spoonful.
