CATEGORY: Imported Italian Balsamic Vinegar Condiment
Now, with the development of this precious balsamic “caviar,” (PERLE DI BALSAMICO BIANCO AL FICO) the famiglia Leonardi has contributed to the movement of molecular gastronomy out of restaurants and into home kitchens. Using a gelling agent and cold oil, balsamic glaze is transformed into small spheres with liquid heart. The pearls are then packed into 50-gram glass jars, sealed and pasteurized.
The Fig White Balsamic Pearls pair beautifully with delicate flavors such as scallops and shrimp, as well as crudo of halibut and swordfish. Try a dollop of pearls on gorgonzola, pear and walnut for a wonderful appetizer or for a delightful surprise, top over gelato or pannacotta!
