OK, so I have to say this recipe was subject to some fairly heavy CRITICISM from my employees, and this in spite of the fact that I could FIRE them!  😆  All I can say is try it for yourself and see! By the way, one of the beautiful things about our sweet balsamics is that they are NOT prone to curdle dairy when mixed together due to the low acidity and NATURAL sweetness. Remember that sweetness is just unrefined grape sugar!
