Add the balsamic vinegar to a small pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer.
Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until thickened and the sauce can coat the back of a spoon.
Remove from heat. Cool to room temperature. This can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
Assembling the Watermelon Feta Skewers
Using mini skewers, toothpicks, or appetizer sticks, carefully skewer a small square of feta cheese. Then add 1-2 watermelon balls. *
After you've used all of the feta cheese and the watermelon, carefully drizzle the balsamic reduction overtop each skewer.** If you drizzle the balsamic reduction overtop, these will need to be eaten immediately. Otherwise, you can store the skewers in the fridge for a few hours until ready to eat. They don't store long, so best to make these before you plan on eating them. ***
* If using toothpicks, you might only have room for 1 watermelon ball. **A little goes a long way, so don't get too excited with the balsamic reduction.***I like to have the watermelon and feta skewers assembled and then a small bowl of the balsamic reduction next to the skewers. This way guests can drizzle it on themselves and it's fresh and ultimately looks better!
