Other Uses for Vinegar in the Kitchen
We love a good recipe that centers around our vinegar as a main flavor, but there are so many uses for vinegar around the kitchen. Check out this list for our favorite ways to use our vinegars daily.
- Balance out the cooking equation - Cooking is all about balance and one of the best ways to enhance your kitchen skills is to add a little acid to liven everything up. Instead of using a lemon or lime, try using one of our vinegars to add a unique flavor to any dish. Just add a little at the end of cooking or after cooking to add a little tang and balance.
- Gastrique goes on everything! A gastique is a home cook's secret sauce. It is basically a sweet and sour sauce with not limits except your imagination and can be used on everything from meats to vegetables to desserts. One part sweet to one part vinegar and you can add herbs or fruit or other flavorings at the end. Check out this basic recipe here then go crazy with all of our vinegars!
- Make your own buttermik - Imagine this, you're getting ready to bake something delicious and it calls for buttermilk. And you don't have any buttermilk. Feels like defeat. But not with vinegar in your kitchen! Add 1 tbsp. of vinegar to 1 c. of whole milk and stir it up and you've got homemade buttermilk.
- Bring food back to life - This tip is mostly for wilted lettuces and greens. If your leafy veggies are looking a little lifeless, soak them in a mixture of 2 c. of water and 1 tbsp. of vinegar to add a little life back to them.
- Make the perfect pie crust - This one's perfect for the holidays. Before you pull that apple pie out of the oven, brush some vinegar on the crust and pop it back in for a perfectly golden crust. Our apple cider vinegar would also add another little apple kick that's unexpected but welcome at the holiday table.
