Raspberry balsamic glaze is sweet and tangy in flavor. It will elevate salads, sandwiches, roasted vegetables and more! Best of all, you only need two simple ingredient.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp raspberry preserves (or jam)


  1. Add the balsamic vinegar and raspberry preserves to a pan. Gently whisk together until the raspberry preserves breaks apart.
  2. Heat over medium heat and bring the mixture to a rapid simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes, while occasionally whisking to prevent burning. The vinegar should reduce by about half in volume. 
  3. Drag the whisk or a spatula along the bottom of the pan. Check if you can see the bottom of the pan clearly for a few seconds before the glaze moves back into place. This is when the glaze is done.
  4. Remove from heat. The glaze will thicken up more as it cools. Let it cool for a bit and enjoy!


  • Keep an eye on the simmering vinegar and stir occasionally to prevent burning.
  • Turn on the ventilation fan above your stove. The vinegar has a strong smell when it is cooking!
  • You can strain out the raspberry seeds if desired. If doing so, I recommend straining immediately after turning off the heat, before the glaze gets too thick to strain.
