This week i am bringing you the rich, sweet and woody flavors of “Balsamic Vinegars” from Bellindora, located in the heart of California’s San Joaquin wine country.
Bellindora has a wide selection of fruit infused balsamic vinegars from pomegranate , apple, cherry, fig, champagne pear, peach and many more along with olive oil. The fruit is from local farms in California, Washington, and Oregon.
Food Network’s Ina Garten has been quoted on her show Barefoot Contessa as saying that “she loves using olive oil from California its her favorite to use”.
Now as a native of the sunny state i would have to agree with Ina.
So today i am making chicken with a balsamic reduction or glaze served with roasted red onion with honey and pomegranate balsamic glaze. Yes red onions when roasted becomes caramelized and sweet, yet remains on the savory side.
Both dishes very simple to make, and you wont spend all day slaving over the stove.
If you never used balsamic on anything other then a salad, then you are truly missing out on wonderful and rich flavor…..
Balsamic vinegar is just………… Pure Awesomness
