Apple Balsamic Vinegar
The 6 year old apple balsamic vinegar is made using the traditional Italian method of reduction and concentration of the juice over a lengthy period of time (rather than by adding flavouring and colouring). The only ingredient in our balsamic is apples which have been grown in Dorset and Somerset orchards.
The longer the ageing process, the more concentrated and intense the flavour. We are currently bottling our vinegar once it has been aged for 6 years, but as the barrels age, we will be selling older vinegar as well.
It has a rich, intense taste, with a real depth of flavour. As well as using on salads, it’s a great partner for grilled meats or charcuterie; a drop brings out the taste of strawberries and other soft fruits; and it can really enhance a stew, sauce or a soup.
Liberty Fields specialises in unique apple-based products, all made by hand in small batches in West Dorset, using the apples grown in the orchards we began planting 8 years ago.
