A Better Understanding Of White Balsamic Vinegar
White Balsamic Vinegar is made from white wine vinegar made from Trebbiano grapes grown in the Modena area of Italy combined with concentrated, uncooked grape must.
White Balsamic vinegar has a mild slightly sweet flavor with a moderate amount of acidity about 5.2percent to about 7.0percent and lacks the abundant caramelized flavor of traditional Balsamic.
It works well in salad dressings and in any sauce where a red vinegar is undesirable. Don't confuse this with conventional Balsamic vinegar, which is dark red with a concentrated sweet flavor.
Look for White Balsamic Vinegar in well-stocked grocery stores, gourmet markets, and on the internet. However, it at Amazon.com: White Balsamic Vinegar, 17 Ounce. There are other brands available too.
