Five Ways To Infuse Balsamic Vinegar Into Your Everyday Cooking

Thursday, September 14, 2017 5:05:41 AM America/Chicago

If the only time you think about pulling that balsamic jar out of your cupboard is when you make salads, you are missing out something special. This sweet & sour vinegar is certainly one of my secret ingredients, and to be honest I have discovered all types of ways to perk up my daily cooking while adding this secret ingredient. Here is how:

 

To flavor up sauces and soups: Balsamic & ripe tomatoes possess an established affinity for each other. From that plain summer salad, it isn’t too difficult to make the jump to tomato based sauces and soups. I used to infuse a splash of balsamic vinegar to these dishes at the end of my cooking to bring out the best flavor.

 

In Braised Dishes: While balsamic infused at the end of your cooking incorporates a dab of brightness, braising even a small amount of balsamic vinegar offers the entire dish a rich, deep and slightly sweet flavor.

 

Reduced to a Syrup: I like reduce balsamic sweetener splashed on top of a cup of vanilla ice-cream, particularly if it consists of strawberries. If you’ve aged or old balsamic, then reducing it’s often not essential. Nonetheless, if you are working with a standard balsamic, take a cup of it in a saucepan with some sugar. A bark of cinnamon will be nice. Let it reduce until it becomes syrup, and then make it chill before applying.

To Marinate Tofu & Meat: With some chopped shallots & a small volume of mustard, balsamic is surely one of my preferred vinegar to employ for marinating. It is superb with steak & other red meats. But I often employ it for tofu & large portabella mushroom.

 

In Cocktails & Soda: Vinegar based shrubs are the favorite of many for different reasons. Considering its sweet property, balsamic Vinegar has a pretty identical flavor profile & I have employed it in much the same manner. You can add balsamic in your soda water to serve your guests a very tasty cold drink. As far as cocktails are concerned, I love balsamic blended with liquors such as rye and bourbon for a unique flavor.

Devised in 1999 by three Irish-American reinsurance executives from New York City, it grew from a single event to a nationwide effort in a relatively short period of time. The founders decided to turn their St. Patrick's Day party into a benefit for pediatric oncology research by shaving their heads, thereby showing solidarity with children undergoing chemotherapy treatment. Therefore, the name of the Foundation is a play on the words Bald and Patrick - going bald on St. Patrick’s Day, led to St. Baldrick’s.

Since 2000, the Foundation has raised over $20 million, with the primary grant recipient being the Children's Oncology Group (COG). This network of over 200 hospitals performs cutting-edge childhood cancer research and treats over 90% of all children with cancer in North America. In 2005, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation established the first St. Baldrick’s Fellowship to encourage promising new medical professionals to pursue pediatric cancer research as a specialty. This Fellow is now in place at Schneider Children’s Hospital in New Hyde Park, NY.
