How to make a balsamic reduction

I love a balsamic reduction on omelets and salads when we go out to eat, but had never attempted it at home. I assumed that it had to be complicated.

Oh boy, do I feel like a moron. It was so easy.

I was just making it to use on a caprese salad for Brian and I, so I didn’t need much.

Let cool and use how you would like.
