Italian cuisine has been quite a blessing for us as it has provided us with many useful and beneficial products. One of these amazing products is Balsamic Vinegar. Thicker than usual vinegar and stronger taste, it has a dark colour and intense flavour. Besides, it can be used in various dishes to level up the taste game.
Let us look at what this marvel of Italian cuisine has to offer us…
