Balsamic vinegar, with its rich, tangy, and slightly sweet profile, is the perfect companion to fall flavors. Today we are sharing a few of our favorite balsamic vinegar marinades and sauces for the fall and winter seasons.
Balsamic Glazed Chicken: Marinate chicken thighs in a mixture of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, and a touch of honey. Grill or roast until the chicken is tender and caramelized, delivering a burst of fall flavors in every bite.
Pork Tenderloin with Apple Balsamic Marinade: Combine balsamic vinegar, apple cider, Dijon mustard, and sage. Let your pork tenderloin soak up these flavors for a few hours before roasting to perfection.
Maple Balsamic Salmon: Create a marinade with balsamic vinegar, pure maple syrup, soy sauce, and a pinch of smoked paprika. Let the salmon soak in this delightful mixture before grilling or baking for a taste of fall by the sea.
Balsamic Reduction Sauce: Simmer balsamic vinegar with a touch of brown sugar and rosemary until it thickens into a luscious reduction. Drizzle this over roasted vegetables, grilled meats, or even a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a sweet-savory treat.
Cranberry Balsamic Sauce: Combine balsamic vinegar with cranberries, orange zest, and a hint of cinnamon. Simmer until the cranberries burst and the sauce thickens. This pairs beautifully with roast turkey or as a topping for your Thanksgiving leftovers.
Fig and Balsamic Compote: Cook fresh figs with balsamic vinegar, honey, and a pinch of thyme until the figs break down into a sticky, sweet compote. Serve this over cheese platters, grilled pork chops, or roasted butternut squash for an autumnal twist.
