What is Vinegar?
Like so many ingredients in our pantries, vinegar is created through the art of fermentation. Made in a two-part process, vinegar is made thanks to the naturally occurring sugars found in fruits and certain vegetables. These sugars are first fermented into ethanol (more commonly referred to as alcohol), when exposed to oxygen the ethanol is fermented once again through the aid of bacteria and converted to acetic acid or what we know and love as vinegar!
Made from a variety of base ingredients vinegar, runs the gamut when it comes to flavor, acidity, and color. Offering versatility and diversity in the kitchen, we rely on vinegars to help us create complexity and nuance in our recipes. Prized not only for their flavorful qualities but also for their chemical makeup vinegars are the key to pickling and preserving food. Their acidic characteristics mix and react with leveners like baking soda to help us get fluffy light cakes, cookies, and muffins. They are also a frequent addition to marinades where their acid helps to tenderize tough cuts of meat. With no end of uses and a wide variety of flavors, vinegar is a pantry staple we think should always be kept on hand!
