|Fruit balsamic is our authentic Australian equivalent to reduced, aged balsamic vinegar (only I think it far more complex and interesting).
It has a base of wild rosella for the fruitiness which is enhanced and amplified with some aniseed myrtle. We then add those Maillard products for the addictive roasted, toasty notes using Wattleseed extract and soy and inject a little sweetness with mirin (Japanese rice wine) and palm sugar. Lastly, some pungency and aromatics are all essential and alpine pepper and paperbark smoke fulfil this role/
So how do you use it? Drizzle some on a plate and place cold meats and cheeses or a chicken and mescalin salad or some smoked seafood. Use as a pasta drizzle as a highlight or over some roasted chicken or twice-cooked duck. Use it over eggs, add to mayonnaise, try it on fish or add a dash to meat sauces.
