This Maple Balsamic Vinegar is the result of "a collaboration between friends." Artesano sweetened this vinegar using only Vermont maple syrup, from neighboring farm, Elliott Acres. The result was this versatile Maple Balsamic, perfect for everything from appetizers to salads to entrees.
This vinegar is not pastuerized, therefore, a small culture ('mother') may develop over time in the bottle. This is a natural occurance- simply give the bottle a good shake and enjoy!
Artesano vinegar is made from raw wildflower honey sourced from Vermont producers. The first step is to ferment the honey with water to make a mead, or honey wine. A secondary fermentation using a naturally occurring 'mother' (a combination of cellulose and acetic acid bacteria) produces a tangy vinegar with 5% acidity.
Unfiltered and Raw

The name of this vinegar is really misleading. It's not balsamic vinegar at all, but apple cider vinegar sweetened with maple syrup. Frankly, I can make this at home, and often do put apple cider vinegar and maple syrup in my salad dressings. It's not worth the price tag, as far as I'm concerned. I'm giving it 2 stars because it's OK for what it is. It's just not balsamic.
This a lovely Balsamic vinegar. It is light with a sweet tang to it. It is so delicious on salads and i think it would be amazing on a summer fruit salad!
