8 oz. Mini mozzarella balls. If they are in water, drain and pat dry before adding to your skewers.
1 pint Grape or cherry tomatoes
Fresh basil leaves
16 4” Bamboo skewers
First prepare your balsamic reduction by pouring 1 cup of balsamic vinegar into a small saucepan over medium low heat.
Cook stirring occasionally (about 15 minutes or so) until vinegar has reduced to about half a cup. Allow balsamic reduction to cool before drizzling over your caprese skewers. The mixture will thicken as it cools).
To prepare your caprese skewers, spear the top of one tomato and slide it up 1” from the top of the skewer. Take a small basil leaf (about 1” in size), fold it in half and slide it up against the tomato. Repeat with a mozzarella ball, and then repeat with another tomato, basil leaf, mozzarella ball, etc. Just before serving, drizzle with balsamic reduction.
