Stir and bring it to a boil for about 15 minutes or until it thickens.

Dip the spoon in to check how tick the reduction is.

Don’t worry, there is supposed to be a lot less liquid when it is done.

You can store the reduction in the fridge for 2-3 weeks.



or drizzle it over the Heirloom Tomato Salad and server in a Parmesan Basket.

    Making it right now to put over lamb chops. I used coconut sugar instead of honey. Am thinking about adding a small amount of butter at the end. Looking forward to it!
