Honey vinegar?
  Re: (...)
When I was in the store, today, I saw something that intrigued me: vinegar made from honey.

It sounded interesting, so I bought some. Now I just have to figure out something in which to use it.

The description on the bottle (English translation copied from the company's website) says:

This vinegar is made from pure bee's honey. It is most frequently used in fruit cocktails and especially with strawberries. It substantially improves warm sweet and sour sauces served with meat, as well as Cumberland-type cold sauces.

I'll have to keep my eyes open for that. I have coconut and cane vinegar. I use them in salad dressings and salsas, and when they're called for in a recipe.

Sounds really interesting.

Never heard of it, but sure sounds interesting. I think the fruit idea would be great. As well as some veggies, like sprouts, that I often give a splash of balsamic to. Maybe a warm carrot salad. Or a salad with chicken over it. I'm trying to think of apps. I may need to find some!

That's really interesting. I went to the company website and they have recipes, but none that use this product.

Keep your mind wide open.

Found this recipe:
Roasted Red Pepper Paste

  • 1 Roasted red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small Shallot, quartered
  • 1 t. Light brown sugar
  • 1 t. Honey vinegar
  • 1/2 t. Sweet paprika
  • 1/4 t. Kosher salt

To roast peppers; Uniformly char the skin with a torch, place in a heavy zip top bag and set-aside until cool. Remove the skin, cut in half then remove seeds and ribs.

Puree all ingredients in a blender, refrigerate in a sealed container.


Also, there are quite a few recipes in Spanish, from tuna-stuffed eggs to chestnut mousse. Here's one of the simpler ones that sounded good. It's from the company's website, but only in Spanish, so I have translated it.

Veal Sirloin with Honey-Orange Sweet-and-Sour Sauce

  • 4 Veal sirloins, about 6 oz each.
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Honey vinegar
  • Splash of Extra-virgin olive oil (Borges Arbequina variety specified in recipe)
  • 1/2 Glass of Port
  • 2 Oranges, peeled and separated into segments, seeds removed
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  1. Put the vinegar, sugar, and port into a saucepan.
  2. Simmer over low heat, stirring constantly, until reduced.
  3. To that sauce, add the orange segments until they are soaked.
  4. Sprinkle the sirloins with olive oil.
  5. Grill the sirloins on each side until done. If using a frying pan, instead, warm it up on high heat, then lower the heat to cook the sirloins.
  6. When the sirloins are done, season them with salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Plate each sirloin on a plate, accompanied by the sauce/orange mixture.

Mario got me started serving strawberries with Balsamic and lots of freshly ground black pepper for a light dessert. Honey vinegar would be something to try also, I'll bet.

Also, that goat cheese appy I did a few months ago - I'll go look for it.

I plated on a long narrow platter and it is a pretty dish and the flavors are just great! Even the kids were eating this one.

Labs, is the vinegar light or dark? (never mind, it's light ) but, does it say what type of vinegar is used?
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

That sounds like a nice vinegar. Why not a "vinaigrette" for a fruit salad or even a berry salad? Vinegar with breakfast fruits even. Drizzled over melons even.

Spinach or "field greens" salad with blueberries, blackberries, red raspberries walnuts and this vinegar in a "vinaigrette" sounds good to me.

The goat cheese recipe looks good to.
