Balsamic Pearls 50g

Balsamic pearls are made from drops of the finest Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. By means of a brilliant gastronomic technique they are transformed into the equivalent of a “Balsamic Caviar”, with beads that are ready to burst in your mouth releasing the precious liquid content.

Some Ideas

Balsamic Pearls are ideal to garnish and decorate many dishes:
– Scatter them over smoked salmon and sour cream on rye bread with a few herbs. Sprinkle over vanilla ice cream and strawberries;
– Scatter over devilled eggs, fish, pizza, on top of a mozzarella in a caprese salad, over tomato and basil bruschetta;
– Add a touch of colour and texture to a grilled pork roast, filet mignon or lamb chops, use to garnish a chilled gazpacho soup;

Description

Balsamic Vinegar is a condiment originating from Italy and precisely from the village of SPILAMBERTO (home to VILLA MODENA), in the province of Modena.

Balsamic has been known since the Middle Ages but it’s origin is still shrouded in mystery : the locals in Spilamberto claim that it originated from a “mistake” : a parcel of cooked grape must, (unfermented grape juice), was left forgotten in a wooden barrel for a long period of time and when it was found again a natural acidification process occurred and the product was deliciously dense , bitter and sweet. The word balsamico means “balsam–like” in the sense of “restorative” or “curative” because this has always been considered as a healthy condiment.
