Like fine wine aged PGI. There are many PGI.
Add unexpected punches of flavor with red wine crystallized ginger and golden raisins.
Red wine sauce without balsamic vinegar. I used 1 C cherry balsamic and 1 C regular balsamic I was afraid that the Cherry would be too intense. Dried figs and balsamic vinegar upgrade traditional cranberry sauce into Bobbys elegant version. Save premium balsamic for drizzling.
I heated until brown and bubbly then simmered til the spears were ready. I followed the cooking instructions but the glaze didnt reduce by half. Vinegars aged less than 3.
Vinegars intended to accentuate beautiful dishes with a raw drizzle cost more. With the asparagus I used EVOO spray ground pepper light drizzle of soy sauce and garlic powder. I used smart balance instead of butter and did as other posters and used 1t of soy sauce and 1T of balsamic vinegar.
This was my first time making a balsamic glaze. I also used 2Tbs. Which is ok by me because it.
