What Is Saba?
Saba is balsamic vinegar before balsamic vinegar becomes vinegar. A rich and sweet syrup, it's commonly drizzled over Parmigiano-Reggiano, added to spaghetti sauce, and used to counter acidic foods. It can be found in specialty food stores wherever real balsamic vinegars from Italy are sold.
