Apple Cider Vinegar

I got a bottle of this stuff today and wanted to know what to do with it? Cook, use it for salads, dressings? What about with apples?

  1. If you catch the flu this season, or a cough...
    fill a mug half-full with hot water, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, and spoonfuls of honey to taste...but, I hope you won't need this remedy.

    1. re: Cynsa

      I think that was perfect timing as my throat's starting to go.


    2. I keep a squirt bottle of ACV and H2O (50/50) on hand to put out flare ups on the grill.
      I find I use it in a lot of recipes.


      1. I use it for all sorts of things pickles in particular. But good for dressing too.

        1. combined with honey, some chili powder, herbs, garlic and a bit of salt, it makes an awesome marinade for pork.

          1. Makes a great salad dressing with oil, blue cheese, a little bit of garlic (and a sprinkle of paprika-- my mom's invention).

            When I make lightly pickled vegetables or a cucumber salad I use apple cider vinegar.

            Also it's great instead of wine vinegar in a potato salad.
