In my kitchen chocolate rules and chocolate vinegar has been on my mind ever since I experimented making chocolate vinaigrette for V-Day.
A few days after posting on my humble recipe site a fellow blogger, Chef Mimi, messaged about the chocolate vinegar she was on a mission to make; a wonderful recipe made by infusing white balsamic with cocoa nibs for a week, a recipe I made and liked very much.
However, I was after darker, richer, spiced vinegar with a hint of espresso so I experimented - first infusing dark balsamic and cocoa nibs and second using cocoa powder and simmering all ingredients for a short time. The tastes were similar, the second version was instant gratification and I’m all for that.
Here is my chocolate vinegar version, home tested in a variety of ways and well received.
Let your imagination run wild with uses if you decide try this!
