The Alfoos mango cultivar is considered by many to be one of the best in terms of sweetness, richness, and flavour. It grows in India and is prized for its creamy, floral notes, and sweet, juicy flesh. Fantastic with shrimp, scallops, salad, and in salsa for a tropical, sweet-tart twist!
Rich and sweet natural black cherry concentrate and other natural flavourings are combined with aged Balsamic Condimento to create a sweet, fragrant and very rich tasting product that has garnered great reviews from our gourmet customers. Enjoy on salads that feature bitter greens and soft cheeses, like goat, feta or blue. Bake it into your chocolate brownies for a Black Forest spin!
Black Currant Balsamic Vinegar is made of native Northern Europe and Asia black currants that have a wonderful, slightly astringent, sweet, grape-like flavour, that is sure to please the most discriminating palate. Wonderful taste when blended in vinaigrette, or drizzled over baked or fresh fruits. Drizzle over ice cream or your favourite cheese!
Our Blackberry-Ginger Balsamic is sugar and spice and everything nice. A seductive mix of tart blackberries combined with the heat and depth of flavour from the ginger makes this a special favourite. Amp up your Asian salad dressing or pump up your stir-fry with a quick drizzle in the last moments of cooking.
The Blenheim variety is both sweet and tart with an intensely aromatic aroma of honeysuckle and picked with a faint green tinge. We’ve married this with our aged white balsamic condimento. The resulting collaboration is intoxicating as it is crisp and tart.
Great with grilled chicken, as a glaze or served with cheese. Pairs fantastically with Roasted Almond Oil or Portuguese Picual EVOO!
Our luscious Blueberry Balsamic Vinegar is just as amazing over garden salad as it is used over fruit salad. When paired with a delicate Extra Virgin Olive Oil, such as Arbequina, the intense blueberry flavour just shines.
Creamy, sultry, pure Madagascar Vanilla and the bright citrus of Cara Cara Oranges combine to delight the senses. Truly surprising and decadent drizzled over fruit salad with shaved dark chocolate sprinkled on top. Try some in your sparkling water, mixed drinks, or over yogurt and vanilla ice cream. Makes a great stir fry with Blood Orange Olive Oil and Dark Toasted Sesame Oil. Use this complex, heart-healthy combination over oatmeal, or try it cooked whole grain cereal, pancakes, or in salads.
This delightful vinegar is spicy and warm, perfect drizzled over fresh fruit or as a dessert topping. Lacklustre apples for apple crisp? Reclaim that sweet-tart hit of flavour by tossing your diced apples with this beautiful vinegar. It carries forth the unique taste of the D’anjou pear and matches well with many of our sweeter, fruity oils for a delicious marinade or salad dressing! Particularly pleasing with the popular goat cheese and roasted beet salad, over a bed of bitter mixed greens sprinkled with candied nuts.
Our Coconut White Balsamic is wonderfully sweet, pleasingly tart and redolent with the clean, natural flavour of coconut. "Wow, that's REALLY coconut-y!" is most commonly overheard when tasting this one! It's beautiful when tossed with shrimp, or brushed onto delicate white fish. Drizzle into your favourite cocktail or tropical punch to really treat your taste buds!
This balsamic is clean, crisp and tartly sweet, boasting a lovely deep, rose blush. It has an amazingly fruity, complex bouquet that shines in a multitude of culinary applications. Use to dress garden or fruit salads, in a marinade or glaze for poultry or pork, with gelatin for a delicious fruit aspic, or even in a mixed drink. Definitely a customer favourite at Prairie Oils & Vinegars!
This Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar is rich, thick, and uses three different chocolates for the depth of its flavour. Drizzle over vanilla gelato, mix with fresh berries, or add zing to your chicken mole sauce. Use with Blood Orange Olive Oil for a decadent bread dipper or unique vinaigrette over spinach salad with toasted almonds and mandarin orange segments. Take this rich, strong flavour to really add depth to your beef roast or marinade using Chipotle or Garlic Olive Oils.
This vinegar is amazingly complex, with layers of authentic espresso and dark roasted coffee seeping through the aged balsamic taste profile. It makes a fantastic glaze or barbecue sauce base for pork, beef, or chicken. Baste your beef roast in this. Add a shot to an “affogatto float,” which calls for a tall mug of vanilla gelato scoops covered with coffee. Try it in chili!
Made with natural ingredients, our aged Fig Balsamic Vinegar from Modena is thick and ripe, bursting with fig flavour. It hits the tongue with tartness, but follows up with amazing depth of flavour, second only to the richness found in the Traditional Balsamic Condimento. Use simply as a bread dipper, drizzled over fruit, or your new favourite salad dressing over bitter greens and feta with nuts.
Sparkling with crisp, clean, citrus flavour, this vinegar has a perfect balance of acidity and natural sweetness. Try this amazing balsamic in a garden salad dressing or a chicken marinade, paired with Fennel Olive Oil or Herbes de Provence. Or drizzle it into your water or cocktail for a show-stopping granita.
The Gravenstein Apple is a hard to find varietal due to the difficulty farmers have cultivating it, contending with a very finicky tree and a fruit that does not stand travel or storage well. This White Balsamic brings the complexity of the Gravenstein’s larger than life flavour. It positively shines as a unique bread dipper, and creates artisanal dressings, marinades, and sauces. Imagine drizzled over poached pears and brie, melon and bean salad, or with bitter greens and berries.
Honey and ginger play well together and bring a gentle, spicy heat which balances perfectly with the moderate, natural acidity of our white balsamic vinegar. Beautifully enhance your stir fry, add some dazzle to your asian cole slaw, or even take a teaspoon for your health!
Sweet and tart, but wait, where's the heat? With all of the flavour of ultra fresh, crispy jalapeños, but none of the heat, this unique vinegar adds an element of surprise to your salad dressings, cole slaw mix, or marinades. Add a splash in a ceviche, spice up a salsa or chicken chili. Blend into dressings to top fruit, potato or pasta salad. Use for pickling or to make a spicy homemade mayo.
Floral, sweet, and slightly herbaceous, our Lavender Balsamic captures the essence of this ancient flower. Pair with chicken, use in vinaigrettes, over ice cream, and with fresh fruits and berries. Our favourite is in cheesecake or buttercream icing for something delicate and delightfully unexpected!
We have searched high and low, and it appears that we have created the first of its kind, a very unique Maple Balsamic, using real 100% pure maple produced at a small family farm in Vermont. This balsamic is outrageously good. Think pancakes, waffles, glazing bacon, salmon, pork chops, ice cream, dressings, marinades, chocolate, cake, fruit, and on, and on, and on.
Zesty and versatile, our savoury Neapolitan Herb Balsamic is made from traditional herbs long used in Neapolitan cuisine, including rosemary, marjoram, thyme, garlic, and sage. Try drizzled over roasted vegetables or over fresh, sliced summer heirloom tomatoes. Use to marinade poultry, or to spike a Bloody Mary. Fantastic with mushrooms or steak, or brushed on bruschetta with creamy cheeses.
This is a sharp and savoury version of our white balsamic, infused with the exquisite flavor of potent oregano. This classic Mediterranean flavour is heightened by the tartness and sweetness of balsamic, making it a perfect complement to add to many dishes. On top of creating superb vinaigrettes, think Italian soups, sauces, or an interesting spin on fish tacos.
This Organic Balsamic Vinegar is produced in the Modena District in central Italy from a supplier who is certified Organic. No artificial or chemical fertilizers are used in their production. It carries forth the wonderful, sweet and sour essence characteristic of balsamic, with a delicately balanced, fruity and full-flavoured finish.
Made with white peach compote cooked down to release its intense, sweet flavour, this bright and beautiful white balsamic is crisp and potently peach-y! Amazing as a water flavouring, BBQ sauce flavouring, or to redeem any lackluster fruit salads.
The intense sweet-tart flavour of the pomegranate is a perfect match for hearty meats like lamb and duck--really shines with beef or venison roast! It makes an exciting dressing whisked with your favourite oil, poured over your mixed greens, with pomegranate seeds, toasted nuts and feta cheese. It adds depth to pan sauces, braised meats, or compotes. Anywhere you'd add a splash of red wine, you can use this beautiful balsamic!
This ruby-toned white balsamic owes its tart, crisp flavor to juicy California Grenada pomegranates and Floral Winter quince. Don't know what a quince is? It is a yellow fruit that looks like a pear, but with a tart flavour, similar in to a sour green apple. Try this blend in dressings, marinades, as a glaze for chicken or pork, in sparkling water, mixed drinks, over fresh fruit or paired with salty aged cheese.
This thick, rich, perfectly balanced balsamic vinegar shines with the natural flavour of fresh, ripe raspberries. It is probably our top seller when paired with Tuscan Herb Olive Oil for your perfect homemade raspberry vinaigrette for over your everyday garden salad or bitter mixed salad greens with a little feta cheese. But also try it when mixing up a dark chocolate brownie batter or rich cheesecake. Even works well drizzled over pulled pork for something fun!
This balsamic has an enticing aroma and a delicate, sweet apple flavour, fruitier than most balsamic vinegars. It adds a refreshing lift to salads, sauces, chutneys, and vegetables. It makes a wonderful bread dipper or salad dressing, but some would say it is put to best use as a pork marinade before barbecuing or drizzled into a mushroom cream sauce to top those beautiful chops after they're cooked to perfection.
Our 2008 Sofi™ Silver award-winning artisan Serrano Honey Vinegar is our only vinegar that is not made from grapes; it's made from a mixture of honey and water, with serrano peppers steeped into it. This makes it sulfite-free, while carrying forth a slightly fermented, sweet and mildly spicy taste. It is a delightful choice anywhere you would usually use rice wine or red wine vinegars. Delicious drizzled over caprese, bruschetta or shrimp dishes. Add to dressings for leafy green, potato, pasta and rice salads. Our staff loves it in a steak marinade--just drizzle a little on after the meat is rubbed with Garlic Olive Oil and Steak & Rib Rub.
It's not just lemon juice. With this Lemon White Balsamic, you'll always achieve that perfect balance of sweet and sour. Playfully tart while pleasantly sweet, our Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic offers balanced acidity with its crisp, lemon flavour and aroma. Fabulous with seafood, in dressings, or in mixed drinks. Achieve a perfect lemon chicken, lemon cheesecake, or Greek baked potato that will leave you wanting more.
Both sour and tart, this flavoured vinegar is the result of adding a potent natural essence of strawberry to our deep and rich balsamic. Best uses are in salad dressings--think spinach salad with strawberries and toasted almonds--but also as a decadent bread dipper with our Roasted Pumpkin Seed Oil, flavour in your mousse or cheesecakes, over fruit medleys or drizzled over super premium vanilla ice cream.
Sultry, fragrant Tahitian vanilla beans are married with our aged Balsamic Condimento. The resulting collaboration is as intoxicating as it is exotic. Try in salad dressings, cole slaw, or stir fry--we're thinking rich coconut curry! Also shines with a simple dish of fresh strawberries, drizzled over a warm brownie, baked into your raisin tarts or on your brunch menu when used with baked oatmeal or french toast.
This flavoured balsamic vinegar is made with whole fruit tangerine essence added. The tart, versatile flavor makes this a customer favourite for salads, bread dipping, barbecue and stir fry sauce. Yes, stir fry sauce! Think chicken or pork, stir fried in Garlic Olive Oil, with red onion, green pepper, green and yellow zucchini, then drizzled with this sweet and sour balsamic near the end of cooking. You'll never buy pre-made sweet and sour sauce again!
This tart, sweet, and crisp flavoured white balsamic is absolutely surprising and delicious. The natural flavors of Thai lemongrass and mint cooperate beautifully and make a dazzling base for asian salad dressings, marinades and stir fry sauces. For a taste explosion, add diced fresh, hot Thai chilies and cilantro. Use this Asian inspired marinade to dress your seafood salad, noodles or use for a dipping sauce. Try mixed with rum for an out of this world mojito or drizzled into your green tea iced tea for pure refresh-mint.
