  • You reduced your balsamic vinegar or a vinaigrette? A vinaigrette is generally one part acid (vinegar, lemon) and two parts oil, so try to get back to that ratio.

  • Anytime you could with vinegar, it will clear out your sinuses so be careful!!!

    Are you trying to make a balsamic syrup? Balsamic will sweeten if you boil and reduce it down. I know some people who actually put that on ice cream. Or are you trying something else? What is twigs? A restaurant?

  • Umm...what you did really doesn't make sense to me to begin with. Are you trying to make a balsamic vinaigrette like you tasted at a restaurant, and you took a bottled vinaigrette and are trying to put stuff in it to make it taste like the one at the restaurant?
