    How to Make Low Carb Balsamic Glaze

    basalmic glaze drizzled on caprese saladMost store bought bottles of balsamic glaze are high in carbohydrates since the glaze is made by reducing balsamic vinegar with sugar. It’s easy to make a keto friendly balsamic glaze at home.To make a low carb balsamic glaze, simmer one bottle of balsamic vinegar for 10 to 15 minutes until it has reduced by 1/2 to 2/3. The more you let it simmer, the thicker the glaze will be. To make it a little sweeter, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of powdered erythritol when you add the balsamic vinegar.This sugar free balsamic glaze can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week or in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 months.When selecting your balsamic vinegar, try to find one free of added emulsifiers and coloring. The higher quality balsamic vinegar that is aged tends to make the best keto balsamic glaze.
