Where is Trader Joe’s balsamic vinegar made?
Trader Joe’s Balsamic Vinegar, Made in Modena. This Trader Joe’s Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is one of many versions of balsamic vinegar that TJ’s has carried. It has a nice sweet-sour taste that goes really well on salads, meats and pretty much whatever you want to add flavor to.
Balsamic vinegar is of course revered in Italy and used in dozens of dishes to add flavor, so the fact this is made in Italy is a good start. I like the flavor of this but to be honest it can be hard to differentiate the different balsamic vinegars from each other.
What is balsamic glaze?
Trader Joe’s balsamic glaze is a thick, sweet and tangy concoction that’s great for dri zzling over caprese salad, finishing pork or other meats, or in a marinade. This is a good value priced under $3, especially with no added sugar.
Trader Joe’s balsamic glaze does unfortunately have caramel color in it and has the less expensive type of balsamic vinegar of course because of the price, but it still gets the job done. What is everyone’s favorite recipe or way to use this little bottle of purple sweetness?! This has an odd place somewhere in between regular old balsamic vinaigrette and balsamic vinegar. I’m not sure how this product came to be way back in the day, but it definitely is very niche. But I wont ever complain about a naturally sweet tasting glaze that can be used on everything from a caprese salad to pork medallions. It may not be used a ton, but it is definitely versatile and packs a tangy, zingy, sweet flavor! Here’s a few options if you can’t make it out to TJs…..
