White vinegar essence??

I was watching a video on youtube on making hot and sour soup.
It called for 2 tsp chinkiang vinegar, and 1 tsp of white vinegar essence.

It looked like just white vinegar to me, i never heard it referred to as white vinegar essence.

Is it the same ? or is it something totally different ?

Admittedly, I've never heard of white vinegar essence.

White vinegar essenz (essig essenz in German) is 28% and is the strength used to pickle herring. Although I make vinegar, that is all I know about white vinegar essence.

Hmm, you're talking about liquid vinegar right?

I was going to say that one of my favorites is Hawaiian Seasoning Salt, and it contains not only Hawaiian sea salt but also powders of vinegar, garlic and Chili Peppers. The powdered vinegar gives it a wonderful kick.

Yeah, definitely a liquid. From the video it just looked like regular white vinegar, a clear liquid

I don't know anything about vinegar essence. However, when I make cole slaw dressing (EVOO, vinegar, honey, and herbs), I use rice wine vinegar, as it's a lot milder than regular white vinegar. I would think that this would be good with hot and sour soup. Reminds me, I haven't made that in a lot of years, and need to do it again.

All it is is highly concentrated vinegar. Anywhere from 25% acetic acid all the way up to 80%.

So, do you just boil the heck out of regular vinegar to get it?
