Coffee Balsamic Glaze

Posted by Kashmira Lal on

 

At the Montville Coffee Cafe at the Big Pineapple, we are kept busy with catering jobs. We love using locally sourced and high-quality ingredients. 

For this event for the Food and Agribusiness Network, we have used Big Heart Pickled Bamboo Shoots and local feta cheese to make a delicious Bruchetta finished with our Coffee Balsamic Glaze. 

Big Heart Bamboo Gourmet Pickled Bamboo Shoots have been pickled in an additive-free Apple Cider Vinegar complimented with fresh juice of Ginger & Turmeric, Honey and Smoked Black Pepper. Highly recommended! You can get them from their website. 

Our Coffee Balsamic Glaze is a hit, and so easy to make. This glaze goes perfectly on top of salads and appetizers. Store in a pouring bottle in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. 

Ingredients
1/2 cup brewed light- to medium-roast coffee
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
One strip of orange peel

Method

Place all ingredients into a small saucepan. Bring to boil, then let simmer for 20 mins. Stir occasionally. Once reduced into a thick consistency take off the heat. When cool transfer into a pouring bottle and store in the fridge.
