Balsamic Butter Reduction Recipe by New Canaan Olive Oil
1/2 cup of Balsamic Vinegar*
1/4 cup of unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
1 shallot finely chopped
1 garlic clove finely chopped
salt & pepper to taste
*our favorite for this recipe is the Black Truffle Balsamic, but you can try any of your favorite dark balsamic flavors for this recipe
On medium heat, melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the shallot and garlic and cook for about 1 minute. Whisk in the balsamic and continue to stir as the ingredients reduce for about 5 minutes (it should be gently boiling). Add salt & pepper to taste and mix in right before serving. This is great over baked chicken, vegetables, and mashed potatoes.
