ABOUT THE BALSAMIC:
Our special Modena PGI Tuscan Herb Balsamic Vinegar glaze (5 fl oz) brings the taste of Tuscany to your home. Made with a barrel aged Modena PGI thick, dark balsamic vinegar and blended with the best herbs Tuscany has to offer. These herbs are basil, oregano, rosemary, majoram, roasted garlic, roasted red pepper and fennel seeds. This classic savory combination of traditional flavors can be used as a glaze or dressing. Drizzle it over roasted vegetables, fresh fruit, deserts, cheeses, salads and tofu. It is also makes an ideal glaze for meat and seafood, such as steak, salmon and chicken.
This sweet and savory Tuscan delight is flavored with all natural, simple and limited ingredients. It is PGI certified which means that it was made using the same methods, that date as far back as the 11th century in Emilia-Romagna Italy. These methods, commemorated in time and history are far superior to that of our mass produced counterparts and is among the finest of traditionally made balsamic vinegars. To follow the time honored tradition of superior craftsmanship, all of our balsamic vinegars are made with fresh 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 and do not require refrigeration. The ingredients in our Traditional Tuscan Herb Balsamic Vinegar are Modena PGI barrel aged balsamic vinegar, basil, oregano, rosemary, majoram, roasted garlic, roasted red pepper and fennel.
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.
Our Traditional Tuscan Herb Balsamic Vinegar tastes great alone. When pairing it with an olive oil, we recommend our Roasted Garlic and Savory Red Pepper Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The Tuscan herbs combined with additional roasted garlic flavor plus a hint of spice in the red pepper. A dash of each is an excellent combination on any meal, salad or side dish.
