Blackberry Ginger Drizzle Veggies 2

Blackberry Ginger Balsamic Vinegar

1 c balsamic vinegar (use a good brand)

1/2 c blackberry’s, blended in a food processor

1 inch fresh ginger, peeled and sliced

Slowly heat the balsamic in a small sauce pan.  Add the blackberry’s and ginger and continue to heat until the vinegar has reduced and starts to thicken.  Remove from heat and strain.  Cool and store in a tightly closed bottle.  Use on fresh fruit, cheese, ice cream, over veggies, etc.  It is really delicious.

NOTE:  If you have trouble getting your balsamic vinegar to thicken, add about 1/2 t corn syrup.  Some balsamic’s have a higher natural sugar content than others.
