Black Mission Fig Balsamic Vinegar

Black Mission Fig Balsamic Vinegar

We are obsessed with balsamic vinegar and when figs are add, it’s like heaven in jar. We recommend using this fig balsamic for drizzling over: 

  • Green salads (with radicchio of course) 
  • Summer caprese salads 
  • Grilled Chicken

This recipe is so simple and easy but does require figs to be simmered. We prefer to cook our fig balsamic to bring out the fig flavors in the balsamic. If you don’t have time or don’t want dishes to clean, try this fig vinaigrette with fresh figs.

We are constantly finding ways to use all our figs when they come in season. We like to use this fig vinegar to top green salad to extend the feeling of summer.

Notes

  • Opt or reduce granulated sugar if figs are overripe
  • The longer you simmer the figs the thicker the liquid becomes. Ours turned out more like a more like reduction… yummy
  • We used our food processor to blend up with small batch. you may use vitamix blender if there is enough liquid to blend up.
