When it's done cooking, take it out, and drizzle the balsamic over it in a wavy pattern. Let rest, covered for a minute or two to let the balsamic heat up and mingle a bit, and I'd bet it would be practically cocaine at that point.

Fresh tomatoes wouldn't go wrong too.



You are a true Pie God !

Excellent choices.

Thank's,

Thanks

I made Pizza professionally for about 3 years, so I learned a few tricks

I sling code now a days, but I never forgot how the tastes should work!

But if it arrives after Christmas, you can keep it for yourself!

got my 2 bottles today. both boxes were crushed and the bottles were dislodged from the packaging (but intact). there was almost no packing material in the box so the decorative packages were just free to rattle around.

had these been for gifting they would be unusable. but they are all for me !

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

Received mine in slightly better condition as far as the box goes, but it appears that a small portion of each bottle was frozen. Having not had this before I am not sure I will be able to tell if its any different....should I be concerned?

First wine.woot purchase.
Best before date Feb, 2012.
Not a good price for expired product!

Mine were damaged in shipping and FedEx could not deliver them. Woot offered a "possibility" of replacement by the winery in 4 to 6 weeks... no thanks. Reading that they were expired, glad they did not arrive now. Waiting for refund.

**** best before 2025 ****

That's what the bottle states if you look at the fine print. i'm double checking this, but the " 21. 09. 12 may be when the balsamic was bottled. i can see how that can be misleading.


This is unconditionaly NOT a "best by" issue.

Mine also says 2025. This stuff is soooo good! I don't think it's going to last too long. I should have bought more.

I didn't find it confusing at all. Kind of assumed that the 2025 was the best buy date with the Feb 2012 being the bottling date.

In any case, I wouldn't store this in the fridge. I did this with my very first bottle I got from wine.woor (from 2009), and it did crystalize the sugars after it was in the fridge for a couple months. Casa De Case sent me a new bottle and told me to experiment with the first one. I was able to warm it up in a water bath, shake the hell out of it, and get then sugars to go back into the vinegar and it still tasted great. Awesome customer service by the seller and kind of a fun experiment to boot.

Figured I would toss that warning out there in case you had ideas of cold storing it in the fridge to keep the fruit flies away.

Second this. My bottle was frozen solid in my mailbox. I love this stuff and am intending to give this bottle as a gift. But if the quality is compromised by freezing, I may have to reconsider.

Got this stuff last week and tried it. Obsessed ever since.

Favorite: over sliced strawberries with a VERY light dusting of table salt.

Hey all. On the topic of frozen balsamic, WD's importer checked directly with the company.

Here is Paolo Cavedoni said about the frozen balsamic:

….it often happens even here in Italy, especially during winter when the temperature is very low. This is not a problem, the taste, the acidity and the quality do not change. You can tell your customers to put the bottle in a warm place and the product will become again fluid.


So go forth and enjoy your balsamic goodness.
