~1/3 to 1/2 bottle of balsamic vinegar
2 or 3 tablespoons sugar or honey or both
~1/2 t salt
~2 T orange juice (or maybe lemon w/ more sugar)
Mix together and cook on the stove until it's reduced to about 1/2 the starting volume. Taste as you go and adjust ratios until you like it. There's a good chance I underestimated how much sugar I put in.
Lightly brown a little butter (~1/2 T), then add a handful of whole fresh sage leaves, fry until they're crisp
I used brussels sprouts and special selection baby sweet potatoes. Chop into roughly equal sized pieces, spread on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and a little salt, stir so they're coated, and roast at 350 for 30-40 min until done, turning once midway through. Pour balsamic glaze on top, add the sage, and stir it all together.
