How about using it in place of the balsamic reduction in this recipe: http://www.epicurious.com...

Mmm. sounds great! Thanks.
I've also found a recipe of making Mugolio Ice Cream: http://www.bojongourmet.com/2009/09/mugolio-pine-cone-bud-extract-ice-cream.html
Must be a nice desert as well.

I like it drizzled on ricotta crostini, and as a substitute for fruit liqueurs in kirs, spritzers and cocktails. Market Hall Foods suggests mugolio can be used as a sauce for duck: http://bit.ly/mtkfQ6

and where did you get it? I assume that in addition to tasting amazing, it has therapeutic uses.

This product is produced from Mugo Pine Tree buds in Northern Italy. I first saw it years ago before I began importing - I wish I was the first. You can use the syrup as you would balsamic vinegar (aged and of good quality) or dark honey (think chestnut honey). Try it with fruit (figs, maybe strawberries), parmesan cheese, pork or venison. Ricotta, mascarpone and ice cream topping are all great ideas from previous posts.

Go to www.splendidtable.org and search for "Pear Rosemary Pine" marmalade recipe. It could easily be modified to make a glaze for baked salmon.
