Coconut Vinegar is made from coconut water, found inside the coconut shell.

The coconut water is filtered, sugar is added, and then it is brought to the boiling point to pasteurize it. After this, it is cooled, and yeast is added. It is let ferment for a week, then the vinegar starter culture is added, and it is fermented for another week.

This gives a low-acid vinegar that is cloudy and sweet compared to other vinegars.

This is very popular in Pacific countries, and has really caught on in Australia: you'll even find Australian recipes mixing it with their cranberries and turkey.

Cooking Tips

Use for dips, dressings, marinades, etc.

Substitutes

Apple Cider Vinegar or White Vinegar with a smidge of sugar added.

Bon mots

"I went to this restaurant last night that was set up like a big buffet in the shape of an Ouija board. You'd think about what kind of food you want, and the table would move across the floor to it."

-- Steven Wright (6 December 1955 -)
