I recently discovered a fantastic little shop here in town called Crescendo. They have balsamic vinegars, fruit vinegars, nut oils, and spices. A couple weeks ago, we had our local Meetup group there and got to taste some of the delicious vinegars and oils. I was instantly sold on the Star Date Balsamic Vinegar and Apple Balsamic Vinegar, as well as the Avocado Oil and Hazelnut Oil. It’s really hard to describe just how delicious they are without having you actually taste them, but let’s just say I had no idea how delicious and sweet balsamics could be.

So I bought all 4 of those things and am honestly afraid to use them, because I don’t want to waste them. I have had 2 recipes in mind for quite some time, one involves balsamic vinegar with pork, the other involves berries with chicken. So, out of necessity on Thanksgiving, I basically combined the two into a delicious sauce to add to the leftover turkey instead of just eating it plain.

As it turns out, this sauce is pretty freaking delicious and everyone gobbled it down (pun totally intended). I also had some leftover shredded chicken and it was equally delicious on that. I’m willing to bet this would also taste delicious on pork, though I had none on hand to try so you’ll have to let me know. Since this sauce uses blackberries, there are some seeds in it. If that bothers you, you could strain them out, but it’s not a big deal to me and nobody else seemed to notice either.
