Balsamic Glaze

I was so, so excited when I found this recipe at Cooking on the Ranch. I have a love affair with balsamic, and Cafe Trio has the most amazing balsamic glaze and I have been trying to recreate it forever. This was perfect!

1 cup balsamic vinegar (doesn’t have to be expensive brand)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1½ pounds asparagus
1 tablespoon olive oil
sea salt

Combine vinegar, brown sugar, and soy sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until thick and syrupy, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
While glaze is cooking, remove tough ends from asparagus, then toss with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Lay flat on a foil lined baking sheet and roast at 400 degrees until asparagus is cooked, 10-20 minutes depending on how soft you like it. To serve, drizzle a small amount of balsamic glaze over the spears and pass extra at the table.
