Balsamic Pearls


The Leonardi family has always been at the forefront of balsamic vinegar in Modena. Their vast assortment of vinegars and related products evolve year after year, offering boundless sources of creativity for modern chefs around the world.

Now, with the development of this precious balsamic “caviar,â€? the famiglia Leonardi is helping move molecular gastronomy out of restaurants and into home kitchens. Using a gelling agent and cold oil, balsamic glaze is transformed into small spheres with liquid heart. The pearls are then packed into 50-gram glass jars, sealed and pasteurized.

A teaspoon of Balsamic Pearls adds a burst of acidic sweetness to any dish. Amuse your guests with a scattering over deviled eggs, carpaccio and crudo, or pizza Margherita.

    Did not say if pearls needed to be refrigerated so I put them in the refrigerator before opening them and they seem to have shrunk in size
