This rich complex balsamic vinegar 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 Vanilla Fig Balsamic Vinegar are barrel aged balsamic vinegar of Modena, fresh freeze-dried figs and all natural dried vanilla.
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 Vanilla Fig Balsamic Vinegar tastes great alone. When pairing it with an olive oil, we recommend our Orange Citrus Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The two make an excellent combination. They can also both be combined to make an amazingly sweet and tart salad dressing. To save on multiple bottle options, check out our Golden Leaf Value Variety Packs.
