Balsamic Reduction Syrup
1 cup balsamic vinegar
Place 1 cup of balsamic vinegar (quality can make a real difference here, but I used Safeway brand and it was fine) in a small saucepan over medium heat.
Stir continuously for about 4-6 minutes, until the vinegar has reduced by half.
Pour in a glass or ceramic bowl to cool, and continue to stir.
Drizzle syrup on plates or over cupcakes.
