When my friend Chuck Till posted about vinegar, it reminded us of how much we have used vinegar in just the past few days here on the farm. So we decided to use today’s podcast to think through all the good things vinegar does for us.
One of the questions Chuck asked was how many kinds of vinegar we have on the farm. We came up with six:
- 20% – scary strong
- Apple cider vinegar
- Red wine vinegar
- Balsamic vinegar
- Fig vinegar
- White vinegar
We probably use 10 times as much of the clear white vinegar as we do everything else combined. It’s our go-to household chemical.
Here’s Chuck’s post about vinegar that got us thinking about all of this.
Here’s the book Amanda was describing during our conversation: Vinegar, by Vicki Lansky.
And here are the three books Lansky recommends (none of which we have seen or read) that Amanda called out during the podcast:
- Antol, Marie Nadine, The Incredible Secrets of Vinegar (Avery/Penguin Putnam, 1999)
- Diggs, Lawrence, Vinegar (iUniverse.com, 1989, 2000)
- Thacker, Emily, The Vinegar Book (Tresco Publishers, 1994)
