is balsamic vinegar free?

Balsamic vinegar is free. Balsamic dressing will probably have added oil, hence the syn value.

I think there is a fry light balsamic salad dressing spray which is free though, just to add to the confusion!

I was recently given the most lovely present - a pack of four 100ml bottles of different kinds of balsamic vinegar, from Waitrose.

It has an explanation on the back of how they are made. I didn't know this before, but there is a classification of different grades, based on leaves - two leaves is "round and spirited", three leaves is "smooth and polished" and four leaves is "intensely sweet and sour".

Can't wait to try them all!

mmmmm, I'm drooling. I LOVE balsamic vinegar. Whenever I get a chance to go to Whole Foods I always go to their oil and vinegar tasting bits so I can scoff the ancient syrupy balsamic tester they sell for extortionate prices! :D

I agree, some balsamic vinegars can be very expensive. I think that the four-pack I was given costs around £10, which when compared with the cost of the full-sized bottles is pretty good. And it will last me ages.

Ooh, that is a good price! Will have to look out for them. I don't mind paying a little bit more for good balsamic vinegar because as you say, it lasts ages and makes everything taste delicious :)

The ones I try at wholefoods are around £20-30 for a tiny bottle though, it's mad. Tasters are free though ;)

Where can you get the balsamic fry light from - none of the supermarkets in this area seem to stock it?

There is an apple balsamic that is absolutely scrummy. I've seen a few varieties of it in different places but Morrisons has started to stock a variety of it too.
