Gourmet Housewares Show Find of the Day: Passion Fruit Balsamic Vinegar

May 8, 2008 | By | Comments (5)

Passionfruit My kitchen and pantry “staples” tend to be fairly limited, so when I find a product that takes the place of half a dozen others without compromising on any of the taste, you can bet that I’ll gladly add it to my stock.  Passion Fruit Balsamic Vinegar,  a great product by Mediterraneo Imports and another great find from the 2008 Gourmet Housewares show in Las Vegas, does just that.  It’s a refreshingly different vinegar, loaded with bright fruity flavor.  I tried it on bread squares, fruit wedges, and on a tiny plastic spoon, and my only thought was “this makes everything taste better.”

Drizzle it over salmon before baking to add a Caribbean flair, mix with olive oil for a zesty two-ingredient salad dressing, or toss it with a fresh fruit salad.  I guarantee you that your dinner guests will leave wondering what mixture of herbs and spices you used to create such a fragrant and tasty topper, so go ahead and decide whether you’ll share the secret or keep it to yourself.  The aged pear variety is also wonderful, so consider trying a few, or sending the bottles as gourmet gifts.
