In the mail this week I received a couple of bottles of goodies from Pukara Estate.
The first was a Caramelised Australian Balsamic Vinegar. Forget wine – I could drink this stuff from the bottle. Unlike other similar brands such as the Your Inspiration At Home version, it isn’t too sickly sweet – and has a extreme kick of vinegar at the end (when you have it straight) which gives it a real zest.
I used it as a dipping sauce with garlic bread – fantabulous. It would make for a great salad dressing, sauce over a barbecued chicken breast. Or seriously – just drink it. It’s good.
The second bottle they sent me was a Garlic Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Now this one will keep away the vampires! WHOA!!!!!!! I have bought garlic flavoured oils before for cooking, but never an extra virgin version. This stuff is great as a Dukkah dip to give it a bit more bang than standard olive oil. Again would be lovely over salads or a nice piece of salmon encrused with some macadamia nuts or pistachios’s.
