A Few Bottles Of Aged Balsamic Vinegar

I recently moved and was astounded at how many bottles of balsamic vinegar I've accumulated over the years. I'd like to roll through this collection and start anew with one bottle. I'm not interested in any salad dressing recipes, have plenty of those, but am interested in odd/unique ways to use A LOT of balsamic vinegar. Thanks.

    Adding balsamic vinegar to less than fully ripe fresh strawberries improves them signficantly.
     
    Here's one recipe for Strawberry Fool that uses 1/4 of a cup of balsamic vinegar:

    I don't know about odd or unique, necessarily, but I do use quite a bit of balsamic for things. Maybe one or more of these will work for you.
     
    Balsamic Pork Chops
    Balsamic Peppered Chicken
    Buttery Balsamic Peas
    Roasted Balsamic Eggplant
    Balsamic Baked Sweet Onion
    Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar
    Balsamic Chicken and Veggies
    Soy Balsamic Chicken Thighs
    Balsamic Roast Chicken
     
    Edit:
    Don't know if you want to get into infusing it or not, but I also do Berries and Balsamic. I've never done it with regular balsamic, though, only the blackberry-ginger.

    I like to reduce a bottle of Wholefoods 365 brand of balsamic vinegar very, very slowly on a very low flame until it reduces by half. The result of which duplicates a $200.00 bottle of the finest, old aged balsamic. A perfect condiment for aged Italian Parmesan-Reggiano or sliced fresh strawberries.

    I like to make balsamic reductions for mashed potatoes, better if they're garlic mashed reds.
    Or how about making balsamic glazed walnuts to put on salads?

    Thanks y'all. Twinwillow, a buddy of mine uses that balsamic reduction on handmade ice cream with predictable results.

    I have used it on pork loins that I tin foil bake in the oven. S&P the loin and lay it on a bed of onions on the foil. Coat liberally with balsamic, seal and cook till done. The juices make a great sauce for the loin.
