Uses for Date Vinegar

The middle eatern market in my neighborhood carries date vinegar. I did a google search but I there wasn't a lot to work with. Any recipes out there? Thanks

    Do what I do when this happens to me, ask the shop keeper what customers do!

      I've used it with lemon juice and pomegranate molasses in bazarghen, a bulgar salad with walnuts. I love the stuff. Deglazing the pan of a roast chicken with date vinegar is very tasty.

        Hmm, I've never heard of it! Maybe it would be a good ingredient in marinades as well? As with any "gournet" vinegar (IMO) it sounds great in a sauce/reduction.

          I think I used it in some Foul Mudames. In general, it's used like you would a balsamic vinegar.

            it's not really as sweet as a good balsamic, though. to me, it tastes more like a cross between malt vinegar and balsamic (albeit a little closer to the malt).

              I use it as a substitute for red wine vinegar in salads when I"m looking for a slightly sweeter flavor, but not as sweet as Balsamic. Works well in salads with shaved apples, for example.
