Balsamic vinegar is a great cooking medium but there are many, others that
are also wonderful.  How sad to limit one's repertoire to one taste.  Apple
juice is great for sautéing onions.  White wine or red wine, of course, or
for an Asian flavor, a little dry sherry.

Too much of a good thing is too much, grin,
