Balsamic Reduction

We LOVE tomato-basil-mozzarella salads, with olive oil and balsamic vinegar drizzled on top and salt and pepper. But we recently found that it is particularly wonderful when you use a balsamic reduction instead-- sweeter, darker, and more syrupy. Stella's in Lyme gave us this "recipe;" you can buy it some places as well, usually labelled as balsamic glaze. 

Balsamic Reduction
4 C balsamic vinegar 
1/4 C sugar 

Combine, boil, and reduce to half.
