Question Carmelized Balsamic Vinegar

Hello. I'm new to this site and hope someone has a recipe for carmelized balsamic vinegar.

I've had it drizzled over food at two different restaurants. What a treat, and I'd love to make it myself at home.

You mean a balsamic reduction?

Basic recipe: combine 1 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Bring to a boil then gently reduce until thick and to your desired consistency. Watch the bubbles. As the bubbles start to get larger, the reduction will get thicker and you need to really watch it at that point or else it will burn and/or over-reduce.

larry, halloumi is from Cyprus. It is a slightly chewy cheese that can be grilled easily without melting. I can't think of any cheese resembling its texture.

"Carmelized Balsamic Vinegar" is sort of a misnomer. What it really is is balsamic vinegar added to camelized sugar to make a sauce.

It's one way to fortify a cheaper balsamic vinegar.
