Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar is from Modena, Italy. Hmmm, is the best description for this vinegar. Drizzle over dessert or meat for an luscious flavor. A smooth rich dark chocolate taste that is exquisite. For a real treat, drizzle over yogurt or strawberries.
Pairs well with: Persian Lime Olive Oil (EVOO)
Marie’s Recipe Renderings:
One of the things I stress at my tastings is “pour and drizzle”. The secret to the Naples Olive Oil Company product isn’t so much “a recipe” as it is falling in love with whatever flavor direction resonates with you.
