If Barrel-Aged Balsamic Vinegar is hailed as the king, then Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar should be the rightful queen. Packed with the elegant flavor of aged Trebbiano grapes, mixed with the fruity freshness of apple vinegar, it will surely make you feel like you are dining with royalty whenever you use it.
Before it gets its crown as a queen, it must undergo a meticulous process first. Locally grown Michigan red apples are made into apple cider vinegar by carefully selecting the best fruits, and skillfully fermenting them. Just like when the kingdoms reigned, no pesticides were used, so you are guaranteed that it is safe, and it is made with the utmost care.
Aside from making food taste better, Hippocrates, considered as the father of medicine, figured out that the apple cider vinegar could also be used for medicinal purposes around 400 B.C.He prescribed a mixture of apple cider vinegar and honey to treat people experiencing bad coughs and colds. It seems like not only an apple a day can keep a doctor away, even apple cider vinegar can.
While the apples are turning into fruity elixirs, traditionally made balsamic vinegar is also maturing on its cozy wooden barrels. It is made from freshly harvested grape juice (Trebbiano grapes) that is boiled down to make a concentrate. Afterwards, it is aged to perfection with a minimum of 12 years in barrels. Such a long time turns humble grape juice into a rich, aromatic, and exquisitely flavored vinegar.
When both the apple and the balsamic vinegars are perfectly mature, the queen’s coronation begins. By masterfully blending them together, the result is a flawless union of the past and the present. With the taste of the past from the balsamic vinegar and the crisp taste of the red apple vinegar, your kitchen will never be the same again. For better.
