Kraft Kitchens Tips

How to Make Balsamic Vinegar Glaze
If you can't find balsamic vinegar glaze at your store, you can make it by mixing 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to simmer; cook until mixture is reduced by 1/3 or slightly thickened. Cool before serving. Makes about 1/2 cup glaze. Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 month.
Serving Suggestion
If your fresh basil leaves are small, leave them whole for a more decorative appearance.
How to Make Chocolate Curls
Warm chocolate slightly by heating it in the microwave for a few seconds until you can just smudge the chocolate with your thumb. Hold the chocolate steadily between your thumb and fingers of one hand and draw a vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate piece. Allow a thin layer of chocolate to curl as it is peeled off the bottom. This will make long delicate curls. To make short curls, use the same technique on the narrow sides of the chocolate piece. To arrange curls on a dessert, use a toothpick to lift them into place.
