Sarsons vinegar isn’t so much recognised by its subtle taste as much
as the bottle it comes in. Vinegar is vinegar, you might
think, and it’s true to say that many vinegars taste pretty much
like any other. But Sarsons vinegar actually does have a superior
flavour to many competing brands, as well as leaving a subtle but
very pleasant aftertaste on the tongue compared to the bitter taste
left by many of its counterparts.
So taste is one thing by which Sarsons is well renowned; its bottle
is another. Well, everyone who likes vinegar loves the Sarsons
bottle, I’m sure you’ll agree, and its iconic shape makes it easy to
spot among other brands on the supermarket shelves.
But even the boffins at Sarsons worried that their bottled vinegar
sometimes pours unevenly and can lead to soggy chips and sloppy
salads, hence Sarsons decision to create a vinegar that could be
sprayed onto food and distributed more evenly on the plate.
But how to ensure the new product stands out on the supermarket
shelves in the same way as their older brand?
Designers did it by using a pretty much identical bottle for the
vinegar itself, then fitting a pump that attaches to the lid used on
the original version. To that they added a transparent dome, a
bit like those used to cover ornaments in Victorian times. Now
their new sprayable vinegar is instantly recognisable alongside
alongside the pouring version on supermarket shelves.
An Apple and a Spoonful of Vinegar a Day Keep the Doctor Away
‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away’; how often have you heard
that said and wondered if the statement is true or just an old
wives' tale? Well, true it possibly might be because the promised
health benefits of a daily apple have just been reinforced by
scientific research by British doctors who believe many ailments
associated with ageing might be delayed and possibly prevented by
taking the daily apple treatment.
Vinegar too has been associated with treating and sometimes
preventing many age-related ailments, hence the reason some
nutritionists believe apple and vinegar used in tandem is much more
beneficial than apple only in the daily diet, especially for people
in middle age or older.
So that’s why so many people, medically qualified and otherwise,
recommend a daily drink of apple cider vinegar mixed in equal
measure with warm to hot water.
If the drink doesn’t appeal, try adding vinegar to crushed apple –
one apple to one tablespoonful of vinegar – and use the mixture as a
topping for fish dishes or as a dressing for salad.
Beer and Vinegar – a Marriage Made in Heaven
In Wellington, New Zealand, there’s an eating place called ‘Fork and
Brewer’ where head chef Anton Legg puts as much time and effort into
selecting beer to accompany a dish as to making the dish itself.
Legg also makes and uses a beer-based vinegar as a coating for
chicken dishes. (Source: New Zealand Herald –
Vinegar - Surrounded in Mystery and Myth
Vinegar: it flavours food, can help you lose weight, it can clean
kitchen surfaces brighter than bright, in fact vinegar has many many
uses which few people realise.
Vinegar has been used for many different purposes over its long and
fascinating history, many of those uses are still common today while
others have been dismissed as unsuitable or no longer relevant or
health-giving for people or animals.
For example, vinegar was used by soldiers and mariners to stop food
rotting on long journeys and to kill maggots and add flavour to meat
that had already decomposed.
Today we have found many more practical ways to prevent food from
rotting and in most modern countries decomposed food would never be
considered suitable food for people or animals regardless of what
treatment claims to render it safe for consumption.
Since those days when rotting food was part of many an unfortunate's
diet, vinegar has developed hundreds of alternative uses, many every
bit as good as proprietary health, beauty and household products,
meaning you also get to save money by keeping a few spare bottles of
vinegar handy.This site focuses on many very different ways to use
vinegar in the home, at your place of work or business, to keep your
family healthy, to keep clothes fresh and clean, to remove stains,
to care for pets, and many more very different and highly unusual
uses for that common ingredient called 'Vinegar'.
