Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar Usage Ideas

  • Try it with our Sorrento Orange Olive Oil as a vinaigrette…a quick salad of arugula, orange segments, thinly sliced Vidalia or red onion and ribbons of prosciutto….and you will have a delicious salad. Add some dried cocoa nibs for added crunch!
  • Delicious on fruits.  Strawberries and bananas are the most obvious, but also as a glaze when grilling fruits.  This especially works well with peaches, pears and pineapple.  Wonderful over aged cheeses and on salads using feta , goat, or blue cheese.
  • A secret ingredient in Baked Beans, Chili, Moles, Marinara Sauce and more!
  • When making Tiramisu…add it to the espresso when dipping the ladyfingers.  A new twist on an old classic!
  • Makes a great topping for baked goods such as fruit filled pastries, cheesecake, brownies and blondies….also on ice cream.  Try a Brownie Chocolate Balsamic Sundae with Strawberry Shortcake.
  • Add drizzle of Balsamic, a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut and some sliced toasted almonds on Greek yogurt and you have a healthy treat that tastes like dessert!
  • As a simple sauce or glaze for meats.  Steaks, chicken and pork work well.  You can make a simple rub of espresso powder, chili powder, cocoa, salt, and pepper to compliment the vinegar.
  • A quick Dessert Crostini…slice a baguette and drizzle with French Roasted Walnut Oil…bake until golden.  Spread with a soft blue cheese, add sliced strawberries and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar! Add it to heavy cream and whip to make a wonderful topping for desserts or cupcakes!
  • Add it to your martinis to make an elegant cocktail or add to a glass of sparkling water…Coconut LaCroix works great!
