In doing this century old rules must precisely be followed. In fact producing this type of vinegar is a centuries old tradition. In sharp contrast to most well known vinegar producers from Modena, no regular vinegar and sugar are to be added as there is no need for cheap imitations. The creation of authentic traditional balsamic vinegar has to be done in a process that requires aging in wooden barrels for at least 12 years of time. The barrels leave the vinegar with an ever richer and more delicate taste, during these long periods of natural fermentation at Acetaia San Giacomo. For those that wish however to use a good vinegar each day, the Acetaia San Giacomo offers a condiment, made according to similar rules. The production is limited. Thus, such delicate specialties shouldn't be heated during cooking in the kitchen, as they would loose much of their tasty flavour. We advise classical recipes: salads, roasted beef and in strawberry deserts.
