I think you know ume-su more than I
It has the salty taste and is really good on steamed broccoli. I buy it at the health-food store. On a hot summer's day, I also like a bit of it mixed with seltzer. But, I'm weird that way--I like vinegars added to water or seltzer.

As much as I like vinegars, I can't take a straight shot of it. A lot of Japanese do, even daily, citing health benefit. Other than a splash of Tabasco in a Bloody Mary, and CWS's confession to weirdness, I rarely hear about vinegar as a libation.

I drink cider vinegar, a bit diluted 1:2 with water and a touch of honey. I don't know about the health benefits, but it's refreshing and I like it.

+1 I skip the honey. If the ACV you are drinking has mother in it, it is supposed to have health benefits. The article I read this week was for pets, but I imagine the benefits are the same whether you are a dog, cat, person, or an alien in charge of the Mothership.

Yes, mine has mother in it. I haven't noticed any benefits, except making the company I buy it from richer. But, I do love it.

Supposedly, if you drink it 15 minutes before eating, it affects how the body absorbs sugars and is considered beneficial for folks with diabetes (I think that was in this article--I do remember it being used for topical flea treatment...)

The "deli section" of a basic Asian grocery store where men in suits bark, "Some of this, some of that, this and this, with rice. please hurry, I'm about to miss the next subway train to work." I hate to think there might be fleas in some of them bins...

I used to make this by the pint. 1/2 cider vinegar, 1/4 honey and 1/4 unsulfered molasses.
In either hot or cold water, add two tablespoons of the mix. I liked it warm in the winter and cold in the summer.
I'm going to mix some up for later today, thanks for the reminder.

I read it was an old fashioned remedy (I read it 35 years ago) for changing your already gray hair back to the original color when it grew in. It worked along with hair coloring.
