How long does balsamic vinegar last?

What is the best way to store cherry balsamic vinegar?
Balsamic vinegar should be stored in a cool, dry place – not in a cabinet over or by the stove, where it will be subject to regular heat. If it’s used for salad dressing, you can also keep it in your refrigerator. But if you are using it for sauces and marinades then you should keep it at room temperature. The ideal ideal temperature for storage is between 59F and 78F. You also want to make sure you close the lid as tightly as possible to limit the amount of air that can enter the container.
When you store your balsamic vinegar correctly you are reducing the amount of evaporation that will occur as the liquid sits in your bottle. When balsamic vinegar evaporates, it looses flavor, making it less appealing to use in all your favorite dishes. Following thesimple rules listed above will ensure preserve the flavor and aroma of your balsamic vinegar for years to come.
But if it has been stored for a long time you should always give it a quick smell test before using it on your food. If it has a rancid smell to it, then it needs to be thrown out immediately.
