Expert Tips

  • Caramelizing is the simple process of heating foods so they release their natural sugars, becoming sweeter and turning a golden caramel color.
  • Balsamic vinegar is a dark brown vinegar with a rich, mellow, smooth and slightly sweet flavor. It’s a distinctive flavor booster. If you don’t have any on hand, you can use cider or red wine vinegar.
