    I don’t have a review but I do have a comment on balsamic vinegar…u do need to reduce this vinegar for any type of glaze. Even if u cook balsamic just by itself, it will be very sour & vinegar-y but after some period of time & heat, balsamic vinegar will tighten up into a syrupy sweet glaze…u just have to be patient & give it time. I make a balsamic glaze whenever I cook delmonico steaks indoors so I know what I’m talking about ;-) hope that helps! Will definitely be trying this recipe soon!
