  • Add the balsamic and maple syrup to a medium non-reactive saucepot over medium heat. Once you see some gentle bubbles (and it really starts to produce a strong balsamic odour), reduce the heat and let it simmer until you pop a spoon into it and it easily coats the spoon (it should reduce by half but not much more, because it can easily burn). This generally takes about 10-12 minutes on low, but definitely watch it because some stoves are hotter than others, and it can easily burn and get TOO sticky (like candy).
  • Allow to cool just slightly for a few minutes, then transfer to a glass jar or container and then to the fridge.
