Vinegar is an aqueous solution of acetic acid and trace chemicals that may include flavorings. Vinegar typically contains 5–20% acetic acid by volume. Usually the acetic acid is produced by the fermentation of ethanol or sugars by acetic acid bacteria. There are many types of vinegar, depending upon the source materials. Vinegar is now mainly used in the culinary arts: as a flavorful, acidic cooking ingredient, or in pickling.
As the most easily manufactured mild acid, it has historically had a wide variety of industrial and domestic uses (such as its use as a household cleaner).

    Recipe Pistachio Dill Chimichurri

    Chimichurri is the South American cousin of pesto. I’m sure you can see the family resemblance. As with its Italian cousin, there are different ways to make a chimichurri. One distinguishing characteristic is the presence of vinegar. Mint isn’t always in chimichurri, but it’s mandatory when I...

    Malt Vinegar Usage

    I noticed malt vinegar in the hypermarket today. It may have been on sale for years in Finland but I've never used it (just balsamicos, white vinegar and apple wine/cider vinegar). This was the first time it caught my eye. It's strange that malt vinegar is not used commonly here although we have...

    Contentious thread, Herb and Spice racks, like fancy Olive oil and Balsamic vinegar bottles

    In my opinion it's more self aggrandizing kitchen design than cooking. I have a big drawer for my herbs and spices. Oooh darling you use saffron.

    Vinegar on Cabbage?

    When I make a "boiled dinner" (cabbage potatoes and spare ribs) or corned beef and cabbage, I like to use some type of vinegar on the cabbage. Anyone else?

    Review Mini Guide to Oils & Vinegars - Time, Inc.

    Recipe Pork Cassoulet

    Pork Cassoulet is a French classic dish. There are many many versions out there and I make no claim to authenticity. This recipe is simple to make and the vinegar adds a good counterpoint to the rich meat. Use the best sausages you can find. Serve with crusty French bread to mop up the gravy...

    Recipe Low Sodium Pork Fried Rice

    I just made this, but I used tilapia instead of the pork (because I didn't feel like trimming down the pork shoulder I had, and because I had tilapia handy). This made for a lighter dish, but it should be noted that this is actually not as bad for you as the standard fried rice you might get...

    Recipe Kimchi With Red Cabbage and Brussels Sprouts

    Well now, this is a shock. I can't believe I've been on this board for nearly 4 months, and I didn't post a kimchi recipe. Kimchi is something I don't make often, but that's only because I make such a massive amount every time. I use it on and in so many things, and I tend to have some on hand...

    Recipe Curried Pickled Red Onions

    This was a happy accident. I have pickled red onions on-hand at any given time, but I generally like to deviate from the standard onion-vinegar-sugar-salt format each time. I've been using rosemary lately, but I ran out of that, so I decided to throw in some parsley. Then, since I felt myself...

    Recipe Mango Pomegranate Chutney

    Just about any fruits can be put into a chutney. Mango is fairly standard, but I really had a revelation when I decided to try pomegranate. The bitterness of the seeds plays well with the other elements of the chutney, and makes good foil to the sweetness of the mango. The color of this chutney...

    Recipe Crock Dill Pickles

    My Dad made the best crock pickles, but I could never find his recipe. A friend shared his, which I played with and adjusted until it tasted like my memory of Dad's. It's a quick, no-can pickle, to have on hand in your refrigerator during summer. I've never canned these, so I can't speak to the...

    Recipe Frontier Vinegar Pie

    I was reading an article that came up a couple of days ago on a Facebook group I am a member of that mentioned a vinegar pie that used to be consumed in times of hardship (winter?) in frontier areas in the last century. I was wondering if anyone had ever tried it? Anyhow, given the subject of...

    Cider vinegar. acid vs. alkaline digestion.

    I was watching a TV program on Monday night called "Food Unwrapped", which goes behind the scenes of food production and looks into common food myths. They ran a piece about cider vinegar and it's ability to prevent weight gain in some people, which it would seem is scientifically proven. I was...
