Make artisanal vinegar
Pour a red variety into a jar of non-pasteurized vinegar and leave it alone, stirring weekly. Within a couple of weeks, you’ll have “artisanal” vinegar. Try out these other ways to use vinegar around the house.
Flavor-boost soups and stews
White and sparkling work best in creamy or clear and brothy soups (think chowder and simple vegetable), while red wine goes well with tomato or beef-based varieties (think chili). Add a few generous splashes per portion. If you’re on a diet, make sure to watch out for these soups that are bad for weight loss.
