I was lucky enough to visit Acetaia San Giacomo Balsamico facility in the Emilia Romagna part of Italy this past year. Ended up buying quite a few different Balsamico's after doing the tasting there. As others have said, you only use the good stuff as a light final dress to a dish. A little goes a long way. But it is pretty incredible stuff. Very interesting to visit the place and see how it is aged.

Holy cow, that stuff is less than half the Amazon price in a Trader Joe's store.

Someone mentioned boiling down balsamic vinegar to make it more like the traditional balsamico. I've done this; Costco has a good balsamic vinegar in a large container. Just slow cook it down until it is about half the volume. Takes quite a while, and I highly recommend doing it outdoors. Unless you like your whole house to smell like vinegar. Take a guess how I figured this out. And no, I'm not a rocket scientist...

I shop mainly at 2 places Costco and Amazon, so i will try both of these methods. Might try the TJ form Amazon first since it is a smaller volume.

The Costco balsamic vinegar is a very good deal and tastes good. The Trader Joe's balsamic is a good deal if you buy at the store and tastes a little better in my opinion. I don't think the Costco price for the big bottle is any more than the Amazon price for the little bottle.

As with others, I buy "decent" stuff from Sam's and then reduce it by half. I also make my own red and white wine vinegars...age and reduce them, too.
