(Vinegar, Balsamic) In our opinion, balsamic vinegar is the finest of all grape wine vinegars. It is also the most expensive, having been aged in wooden barrels for many years. The lesser expensive brands have been aged for about least five years. The more expensive brands of balsamic vinegar have been aged in several different flavored wood barrels for longer periods of time. The aging process also concentrates the flavors. Balsamic is not technically vinegar, and the manufacturing process has more in common with sherry than with other vinegars. It is made from cooked grape juice - white grapes, surprisingly, given balsamic's intense color. Straight from the bottle or slightly sweetened with a little stevia extract it is great on salads, and adds a wonderful full bodied flavor to dressings and other recipes. We could not find any nutritional information for balsamic vinegar.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
