A simple recipe for homemade sweet balsamic glaze!



  • 8.5 oz container of balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Teaspoon sugar


  1. Add balsamic vinegar and sugar to large saucepan.
  2. Bring to boil.
  3. Reduce to simmer.
  4. Let simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  5. Glaze is done when it coats the back of a spoon (remember it will thicken as it cools).
  6. If you don’t want too sweet of a glaze, start with 1/4 cup sugar and taste it at the 20 minute mark. You can always add more sugar.
  7. The better the balsamic vinegar you use, the better the glaze.
