Our Green Apple Balsamic Vinegar busts with the tart acidity of granny smith apples. The amazing vinegar is a wonderful complement to the spiciness of greens like watercress and arugula. Made with the flavor of green apples and our Traditional Balsamic Vinegar, this is a favorite for salads, Asian coleslaw, or even as a marinade for shrimp or scallops. It is so versatile!
Our Green Apple Balsamic Vinegar is made for us by one of the most renowned makers of Balsamic Vinegars in Italy. It is made in Modena, Italy using traditional methods. First quality grape must, which is obtained from whole pressed grapes from locally grown late-harvested varietals, particularly Trebbiano and Lambrusco, is reduced by roughly half and left to ferment naturally for up to three weeks. The resulting concentrated grape must is then blended with a small amount of premium aged wine vinegar to balance the acidity and matured and further concentrated for a minimum of 18 months in Slavonia Oak casks.
Green Apple flavoring is then added to the resulting Balsamic Vinegar which has a glossy and viscous dark brown color, with beautiful orange reflections. It has a velvety texture and a slight fruity sweetness, balanced 4.5% acidity and mellow oak undertones.
Our Green Apple Balsamic Vinegar should not be used as an ingredient when cooking, as heat might affect the balance of sweet and sour and cause bitterness. It can and should, however, be used after cooking. It is perfect for finishing stews, risottos, scallops, grilled meats and fish. It is, of course, also extraordinary over fresh cut berries, melon, aged cheeses and vanilla ice cream.
