An Italian ingredient, balsamic vinegar is made from white Trebbiano grape juice. This vinegar's dark color and pungent flavor develops while it ages in wooden barrels. Balsamic vinegar is fat free and imparts an intense, sweet flavor to food. Use it to jazz up low-fat recipes.
No balsamic vinegar? Yes, you can use other vinegars; just expect a different flavor.
