Tuck a little Vinegar Barrel in the corner of your kitchen...
Vinegar is easy to make at home. If you drink wine, from time to time you’ll have some bottles that weren’t finished and the wine just isn’t good for drinking anymore. Take your leftover bottles of wine and turn them into fabulous vinegar. Your homemade vinegar will be crisp, well-balanced and will take on the subtle flavors of the wines. Barrel-aged vinegar tastes wonderful – and hands down … is better than anything you can find at the market. Learn a little more about vinegar in this video featuring Alton Brown!
There's nothing complicated about making homemade vinegar. Rinse and prepare your oak vinegar barrel. Add mother of vinegar. Then pour in a nice fruity red, crisp white wine or a sumptuous ale and … let nature take her path.
Made in your oak vinegar barrel, vinegar is a living ingredient created through the process of fermentation. Your finished product will have a depth of flavor that differentiates a naturally fermented vinegar from a store bought manufactured one. In the end you will be rewarded for your patience by the flavor of your finished vinegar.
Could there be anything simpler? Start your homemade vinegar today. Do this and whether you bottle it to give as gifts, use it simply in vinaigrette or other fine cooking recipes – you’ll be rewarded for years to come.
