ABOUT THE BALSAMIC:
Our premium aged Modena PGI Blackberry Lemon Balsamic Vinegar (5 fl oz) glaze is thick, extremely flavorful and tart! A little will go a very long way! We started off with Strawberry Lemon, but we found over time that the strawberries were not flavorful enough to compete with the potency of the lemons. Therefore we changed the recipe from strawberries to blackberries and viola, our Blackberry Lemon Balsamic Vinegar was created! The deep blackberry flavor holds its own with the tart lemons and in the end you can taste both the blackberry and lemon flavors equally! Even make your own Blackberry Lemon Cheesecake!
This deep and tart balsamic vinegar is flavored with all natural, simple and limited ingredients. Made with freeze-dried fruits and vegetables; not preservative laden purees, juices or unnatural chemical extracts. The absence of water will ensure that it ages smoothly and more importantly, that it will taste even better as it ages and lock in the nutritional benefits! Without the water, all of our balsamic vinegars are non perishable, do not require refrigeration and are extremely flavorful. The freeze-dried blackberries and lemons are not only in the most nutritionally available form, but provide concentrated flavor so as not to warrant the need for any added sugars or unnecessary, unhealthy ingredients. The only ingredients in our Blackberry Lemon Balsamic Vinegar are barrel aged Modena PGI balsamic vinegar, freeze-dried blackberries and freeze-dried lemons.
Every step of the way, we make sure to provide superior quality, to ensure we provide a healthy, quality product. We add our ingredients through the brand new and superior method of vacuum blending. Normally, blending in fruit or vegetables would cause oxidation. When you leave an apple out and exposed, it turns brown. This is oxidation. Oxygen much like water, can not only cause fruit to rapidly expire without preservatives, but neutralizes the antioxidant activity. As our fruits are freeze-dried, expiration is not a concern, but we did want to make sure our superior nutritional profile was not hampered by oxidation. Vacuum blending also provides a profoundly more fresh and flavorful taste.
Because it is tart, this balsamic is best served over salad as a dressing or drizzled over items that are already savory such as chicken cordon bleu or chicken piccata. All of our balsamic vinegars, like all true aged balsamic, are sweet and not bitter. So at the end of the day, the possibilities are literally endless. Try on sides like ice cream, yogurt, fruit cocktail and make your own Blackberry Lemon Cheesecake! Or try on main dishes like salads, vegetables and meats. All of The Golden Leaf Balsamic Vinegars are a healthy and delectable addition to any meal or snack!
