Fig Balsamic Vinegar Creates A Stir

FRESNO, CA — Valley Fig Growers is creating a stir amongst food aficionados everywhere with the introduction of Blue Ribbon Fig Balsamic Vinegar. As fruit and balsamic vinegars continue to top the trends lists, Valley Fig Growers used their fig expertise to develop a premium balsamic vinegar. A blend of figs, grapes and red wine vinegar, the resulting product is richly colored Fig Balsamic Vinegar with a fruity aroma and delicately balanced sweet-tart flavor.

“We’re seeing a lot of interest in private label use for this ingredient,” says Gary Jue, vice president of ingredient sales and technical support. “Our Fig Balsamic Vinegar is ready-to-use from the container as an ingredient in finishing sauces, salad dressings, marinades or enjoyed as a condiment. I like to serve it with a little olive oil at the table along with some crusty French bread, or brush it on grilled vegetables and fruits, fish and chicken.”
