Kosher Sherry Vinegar

Hi! I am hoping someone can help me. I live in Rockland County, NY, (near Monsey) and have been trying to find a kosher sherry vinegar. I have a wonderful dressing for spinach salad in a Festival Cookbook and I've been improvising. I'd love to make the recipe properly. Any one??? (Thanks to all of you who have posted yummy vinaigrette recipes.)

    In Tierra Sur's tiny kitchen, Aarons makes his own bresaola (air-dried beef), venison terrine, boudin blanc (a sausage) and duck rillette; he cures his own lamb bacon, salts his own cod, ferments his own vinegars. When he couldn't find kosher sherry vinegar, he made it; Herzog now has plans to market the product

      Thank you - any idea when it will be marketed? I'd love to make my own! I make my own teryaki, and other dressings. Also sauerkraut. Any ideaa on how I would find out how to make good sherry vinegar? Thanks again!

        Any clue on what's going on with this? I still only see sherry wine vinegar (gross). Since I'm cooking for someone who keeps kosher at the moment I've have to banish all my great recipes that include sherry vinegar. I still haven't seen it anywhere.

          find the best kosher sherry your comfortable buying. mix it 50/50 with braggs cider vinegar or any other mother having cider vinegar. cover with cheese cloth. let sit at least a month. boom.

            I appreciate the suggestion, but having had the real stuff I'm pretty sure this would be a poor substitute. I don't think the mix and a month's wait can substitute for aging in oak! And for better or worse I'm not about to search out my own casks. :) I'll wait for the real thing and until it appears, just lust after it!

              umm, ive had the real thing too once or twice. try it.

      2. I could be wrong but I think Kedem makes some.

          Unfortunately it's actually Kedem who makes that gross sherry wine vinegar. :(
