Sweet Balsamic Reduction

Drizzle over just about anything!! Caprese salad, pork tenderloin, fish, appetizers, veggies, etc. Tonight we had it drizzled over salmon steaks - but I didn't get a pic b/c they were devoured so quickly. The pic below is just a tortilla chip with feta drizzled with the sauce - so super delicious!
Sweet Balsamic Reduction
2 1/2 c good Balsamic vinegar
1/4 c brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp table salt
1 tsp finely ground pepper
3 T butter

Add all ingredients into a sauce pan and bring to a boil stirring often. Turn down to Medium heat and let it reduce by half. This will take about 20 - 30 minutes. You will notice a difference in consistency and it will start to look like a dark bubbling caramel.

Turn off the heat and add butter 1 T at a time - make sure they are well incorporated into the sauce. The butter adds a little depth and a beautiful sheen to the sauce. Let cool. I keep mine in a ketchup bottle in the fridge for up to a week.
