I buy my apple cider vinegar at the health food store. It almost always develops a mother.

I buy litre bottles, and put them down in our wine cellar to mature just like you would a good vintage wine. I have never been able to persuade any of my neighbours who produce vinegar from their own grapes to give me a piece of 'mother', but as the vinegar I buy is not sterilised, it ages well. The four year-old is particularly good.

I love vinegar. I made a whole bunch a year ago August. And then I got into this vinegar grove.... I also have one from the Caribbean that has hot peppers, etc. in it. Love it.

I had to go to a cheese shop that specializes in local artisan cheeses yesterday (across the bridge in Gatineau). Of course the shop also carries hard-to-find vinegars. (I was so glad to have a GPS--I get lost when I cross one of the bridges). I picked up a larger bottle of maple vinegar and a pricey bottle of yuzu rice vinegar. I was introduced to yuzu juice through a recipe by one of the Chefs whose recipes I test drive for the home cook. I am thinking about what to do with it...That upped the number of different vinegars I have.

Move over Dark chocolate balsamic vinegar, there is is a new bottle in town. I LOVE the maple balsamic vinegar I picked up today. I have 2 other maple vinegars, but this one is to die for. Any Ottawa area folks, drop by Unrefined Olive and get a bottle of the maple vinegar (and the dark chocolate balsamic).
