Fresh Cherve Drizzled with Aged Peach Balsamic Vinegar Reduction
This application is easy, elegant and delicious. Use only the finest quality, fresh goat cheese here. The golden peach balsamic condimento reduction compliments the creamy, slightly salty, tangy goat cheese perfectly. The complex flavor of ripe peach and naturally caramelized dried fruit notes adds a mellow sweetness.
Fresh Cherve Drizzled with Aged Golden Peach Balsamic Vinegar Reduction
2 cups aged peach white balsamic vinegar
8 oz. fresh cherve
In a 2 quart sauce pan over very low heat, gently simmer the balsamic vinegar and reduce by half, approximately one cup. The condimento should never be allowed to boil or the natural sugar will burn and become bitter. The pot should be watched carefully. The process can take as long as 30 minutes but the results will be worth the effort. The finished reduction will be thick and light amber in color. Allow to cool completely and then transfer to a jar.
Once allowed to sit and cool the flavor will become more complex. It can be kept on the counter or in the refrigerator, however refrigeration is not necessary. Use to glaze pork, poultry, ribs, fresh fruit or paired with cheeses.
