What's I like most about it, is it takes away the sharp spikey taste of cheaper Balsamic Vinegar, and unlike the supermarket brands it's not doused with sugar making it too sweet. It's also not expensive like the higher quality vinaigrette you get at specialty markets.
This is sweet and tart at the same time.
But beware, this isn't something you make on the day, it has to be put in the fridge for at least a week or two before the tastes are all absorbed into each other.
But for your own personal taste it's worth making it for the day and see if you like it.
I generally just put everything in without measuring it. A lot of times, when I am about to finish up a bottle of the sauce or oil I make a batch so I can open a new one. So just be aware you may want to put more or less of something in the future, to suit your taste.
Mostly.. I think it's about :
- 200ml or 8.5 ounces of Balsamic Vinegar,
- Two table spoon each of soy sauce, mirin, sesame oil
- 1 table spoon of honey
- Salt and Pepper to taste.
Leave in the fridge for at least a week, but improves with time. Can keep a long while.
This bottle was made Oct 28th 2015. I will come back with more details. It's the first time I have measured how long it takes to marinate.
*I tried it Nov 10th 2015 and it tasted pretty good, or at least good enough to use. I think it can be much better, but so the minimum wait is two weeks, I would say.
