    So they have people who are paid to watch over these bottles of vinaigrette for 30 fucking years. Pretentious is some git thinking he has the fucking right to judge it because he went to culinary school, and shares a RU-clip channel with other wannabes.stick to judging gadgets.

    That's a "Cream of balsamic" rather than just a aged balsamic vinegar. Best ingredient in the world, you can marinade meats in it through to having a drizzle of it on ice cream.

    That quality of balsamic vinegar is for strawberries and ice cream, not tomatoes and mozzarella.

  • Crystal Hamling
    Crystal Hamling 3 months ago

    I love Barry's comment about the balsamic, but the thing is you can't have something identical/similar to aged balsamic vinegar because it gets to be that fabulous specifically from the particular vinegar-making process that this vinegar undergoes...and it's a long and hand-done process, which makes the end product quite expensive. The culture and heritage of making traditional balsamic vinegar of Modena (aceto balsamico tradizionale de Modena DOP) is amazing! Modena is definitely a worthwhile tour learn about this gorgeous process that results in really expensive--and wonderful--vinegar. Cheers!

    One Christmas I was given a bottle of true balsamic vinegar from Modena Italy. That stuff in the supermarket just doesn't carry it anymore. I only buy true balsamic from Modena. I apply it with an eyedropper, LOL! From that point on I have never looked back. It's worth every penny.

    When I heard the first item was a "Butter making set", I honestly went "wha-?" when I heard the first recipe.
    Making butter is so simple that you can basically make it by pouring some cream in a plastic bottle and shaking it vigourously for a few minutes.
    Look up #Buttertoastchallenge if you don't believe me.
