We recently brought Saba in to the store – and we’ve had a few people ask:
“well, what is it?”
Saba is balsamic vinegar, before it becomes balsamic vinegar. It is a syrup made from cooked down Trebbiano grapes that are then bottled right away, instead of aged. While it’s been around as a condiment for ages, it’s only really started getting attention on this side of the world in the last few years or so.
What does it taste like? Sweet, very grape-y, and not at all pungent. Think liquid grape jelly. It’s fantastic for desserts, and pairs quite well with game meats or poultry. Did we mention it’s fantastic with pork, too?
We’ve got Saba at our main store just waiting for you to try – swing by for a taste test today!
