Over did my reduction just a tad. It doesn't tase burned, but it's too thick. Can I try to thin this out with something (more basalmic?) Or is it beyond repair?
hardlikearmour is a trusted home cook.
I vote thin it out a bit with a little water.
Yep, water should do the trick.
All that reducing does is remove water, so I would think you could add water, as hardlikearmour says.
Well, not exactly. You only make the mistake of putting your head over the saucier once.

As almost everyone else has said - adding a little water should help! However, depending on how reduced it is, you may have something great! I once worked in a restaurant where we made a very thick almost caramely balsamic reduction and drizzled it around and over a wonderful portobello-chevre-spinach-roasted pepper Napoleon. Yum. I'm drooling just thinking about it!
It sounds a little weird but what you have is awesome on ice cream and strawberrys! Try it.
