Blackberry Balsamic reduction


I got this off pinterest.

Remember all those blackberries we got from the farm? Time to put them to use! I cannot wait to try this on meats!!! I am going to make a blackberry balsamic reduction and a blackberry rosemary balsamic reduction.


2 1/2 cups blackberries

1 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

2 tbsp. molasses

(rosemary for 2nd reduction)

This is the amount used per reduction, so all in all it was doubled

Put all ingredients is a sauce pan and simmer over medium heat.

Mash blackberries as they soften. Reduce heat if it starts to boil.

Continue to simmer until liquid has reduced by half. It should thickly coat the back of a spoon when it is done.

Strain through a mesh sleeve and discard seeds

Store in a jar or bottle with a tight lid, it should keep in the fridge for weeks. Or you can do what I am doing and freezing it in freezer bags for later.

I froze some of it and may have licked the bowl clean with some ice cream

Sooooo freaking good!!!! I am going to look forward to this every year!
