Re: what the heck is that?

I'm going to go off the board and say it will be some kind of high-end balsamic vinegar made by one of the wineries Woot Wine has had on before.

I got it right on my first guess (the second and third guesses were wrong though).

Very nice woot! I am so in for at least 1, after I research it a little.
Good job favre. Always go with your first instinct.

Right here. Worst case scenario, I can dispose of one to my mom for $45. It's nice to be related to other food snobs.

Or you could be a good son and give it to her (and make your brother look like a schmuck in the process).

WD, any chance of the maker (or someone associated with the stuff) popping in to chat about the product?

Nice! Took you almost a minute though. Now we'll see if we count it because it's not wine ha.

So close to 21, I can almost taste it. But I don't think it would matter with this, right?

I do love balsamic vinegar.. but is it 5 times better than the $8 bottles of aged balsamic you get at the grocery store?

wow. See I'm severely considering this because I love to cook with Balsamic Vinegar. I want to know how good it is, or if I should just stick to what I have right now.. because this looks really good.

Im not sure about this specific one, but if you compare $8 balsamic to really good balsamic, its definitely worth it

Oh man, and just when I am thinking of making this strawberry-balsamic ice cream using these amazing hybrid (of conventional and wild) organic, supersweet intensely flavoured and almost herbal-tangy strawberries from my farmer's market. I had given up on ice cream making because I don't have a machine but a friend has a fancy one and is willing to lend it to me, in exchange for donuts and pastries (I have a deep fryer and make a ton of tarts and pies).

And I was like...but the balsamic vinegar I have on hand right now is not superb (though perfectly delicious), maybe I should get that really great stuff I sometimes get...

Man, I want to be in on this, but I'm not really a foodie, have never used balsamic vinegar before (although, somewhat ironically, I have been looking at some at my grocery store), but I'm not sure I have access to good enough foods here in Middle of Nowhere, North Dakota to make such a purchase worthwhile. Can anyone suggest some ways I could utilize this (and thus make sense of a purchase that I predicted)?

In for 3. I can't resist the option of kickin' balsamic. Perhaps a cheese will pop up in the next few days to pair with it.

:0)

Probably 1 or 2 to be used as gifts for fellow gourmets. Looks like it's time to start kicking it up a notch and break out my French cookbook again.

balsamic vinaigrette?

Might be blasphemy with something this good (like making Mimosas with Dom). A little bit of balsamic in olive oil with minced garlic makes a great dipping sauce for warmed bread.

A sign indeed! I was just at the farm market over by the UN today and saw they had strawberries back this week. Should have bought some. Oh wait this won't be here in time anyway oh well. Oh but a labrat bottle will hmm.

you can do wonderful stuff with Balsamic Vinegar. Rub it into a tenderloin roast with rosemary, salt, pepper, and thyme and put whole cloves of garlic into slits in the roast and broil it. It's amazing.

I also make a great Asian dish with Balsamic Vinegar and Hoisin Sauce (and a touch of soy sauce) as the base while I cook onions and mushrooms with either keilbasa (odd I know, but believe me, it's to die for) or chicken or pork. Really simple usages and nearly no measuring for such concoctions.

Google Translation:

Balsamici of Modena

The Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Cavedoni is a product totally genuine, dark, fragrant and full of flavors and essences odorous that derive from grapes from Trebbiano and wood barrels in which rests.

The Balsamico Cavedoni is characterized by balanced combination of sweet with agro and his extraordinary alchemy is formed to slow aging of cooked typical castelvetresi vines, carefully blended with the right doses of natural wine vinegar.

Seriously? Just drizzle a bit over some summer tomatoes. Pour some out on a plate with some good olive oil (you'll have to buy that too) and dip crusty bread into it. There are more creative things you can do, but these should get you started...

I know wine.woot can't ship to many states due to certain (bad) state laws, but does this law extend to balsamic vinegar?

Because I'll buy one for sure, if I can.

The maker's site recommends not cooking it. Not to say that it wouldn't be awesome in those dishes, but it'd be kind of like sauteing with high quality, extra virgin olive oil. Maybe drizzle it on those dishes just before serving. Or have it with strawberries for dessert. Or drizzled over really good ice cream. Or just drink it.
