Vegetable Bundles

Vegetable bundles are perfect for Easter or any Holiday dinner. Super easy vegetables bundles are perfect anytime. You can assemble these bundles before your guests arrive, then cook them in a matter of minutes. Everyone gets their own bundle of vegetables. Right before serving, drizzle the vegetable bundles with a thick balsamic vinegar reduction. A balsamic reduction will add so much flavor and brilliant color.

Balsamic Vinegar

Balsamic Vinegar hails from Italy made in and around the areas of Modena and Reggio Emilia. It’s produced from white Trebbiano grapes, the ‘must’ of which is cooked and concentrated until a deep, dark and rich. The vinegar continues to gain its dark color and pungent sweetness from a lengthy period of aging in barrels of various woods, such as chestnut, juniper, and mulberry. We made our balsamic vinegar reduction using World Market Balsamic Vinegar

Balsamic Reduction

It’s super easy to made balsamic reduction. No fancy ingredients needed, only 1 cup of good quality balsamic vinegar. That’s it! The directions aren’t difficult at all either. Simply pour balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan. Turn heat to medium high and bring vinegar to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to simmer and let simmer for about 5-7 minutes or until vinegar has reduced down. Stir occasionally. It has reduce down if it coats the back of a spoon. Let cool completely. Store in an air-tight bottle in the refrigerator.
