Vinegar comes from the Old French "vin aigre", meaning "sour wine." Its main
ingredient is a weak acid, acetic acid, typically about 5% w/v though this
can be as high as 18% when pickling. Pasteur (1864) was able to demonstrate
that vinegar results from a natural fermentation process. It is often a
by-product of the winemaking process.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
