Confused at the use of infused vinegars...

The restaurant I work for has a few, and have given me free reign to play. Am I condemned to salad dressing? I appreciate all of your help. You are all rockstars in your own right...

Not at all. You can use them for flavouring on grilled meats, make fresh pickles to accompany meals, you can even add infused vinegar to baked goods, use them in marinades and make chutneys.

I've never really used infused vinegar. Unless you consider most hot sauces to be infused vinegars. Then I have used gallons of the stuff!

Usually hot chili pepper mash, onion, garlic and spices. Some use fresh chili with out the fermentation process and I believe some are even made from various dried chili powders.
