My Favorite Ingredients: Balsamic Vinegar

So, I thought I might start a new series here: My Favorite Ingredients.

Although I am always experimenting in the kitchen and trying new recipes, there are several ingredients that I consider to be my go to's. These staple ingredients are always in my kitchen and often times are in my recipes too. Well, now that we've got several recipes to work with here I thought it might be time to round up a a handle that all utilize the same ingredient. This way, when you've got some of my favorites on hand you can come here and find a handful of different ways to use it.

I have round ups for all of my favorites in the works: honey, red wine, Dijon mustard, canned tomatoes, maple syrup, Greek yogurt, and more. Today, however, we're talking all about balsamic vinegar. This is one of my favorite ways to add sweetness and/or tang to a recipe. You can whisk it into a vinaigrette to dress a salad or cook it down to create a sweet and syrupy sauce. So, here are few great recipes utilizing balsamic vinegar: hearty meat dishes, fresh salads, roasted vegetables, or in a light pasta dish.
