Featured Product: Tantillo Balsamic Bliss
Tantillo Balsamic Bliss is a very balsamic vinegar that comes direct from Modena. To make this incredible product, Trebbiano grapes are freshly crushed before beginning the slow aging process in wooden casks. This is the most traditional way to produce exquisite balsamic vinegar.
Each cask is aged for several years to cement the fermentation process and deepen the richness and complexity. The result is a silky glaze that’s bursting with flavor and sweet tang. Try it for yourself!
Cooking with Balsamic
Balsamic vinegar is a jack of all trades in the kitchen and is a must have condiment for a variety of recipes and culinary applications. Balsamic is traditionally served in Italy with Parmigiano Reggiano or with cured meats in a delicious antipasto array.
Alternatively, balsamic can be used to liven up salads, drizzle over fresh berries for a sweet tangy bite, or really jazz up steaks, chicken or seafood in a fabulous marinade. And here’s something delicious you may not have tried: drizzle it over gelato!
Health Benefits of Balsamic
Besides being incredibly delicious, balsamic contains a number of good for you health benefits, too. Balsamic vinegar has been shown to lower blood pressure, promote good cholesterol and is rich in antioxidants—protect those cells! That’s not to mention the boost of vital vitamins and minerals like iron, calcium and potassium!
