(Vinegar, Apple Cider) Apple cider vinegar, otherwise known as cider vinegar is a type of vinegar made from apple cider or juice. It has a pale to medium amber color, and to us, it has a milder taste than distilled white vinegar, even though it has the same acid content. Apple cider vinegar is used in salad dressings, marinades, vinaigrettes, food preservatives, and chutneys, among other things. It is made by crushing apples and squeezing out the liquid. Bacteria and yeast are added to the liquid to start the alcoholic fermentation process, which turns the sugars into alcohol. In a second stage of the fermentation process, the alcohol is converted into vinegar by acetic acid-forming bacteria (acetobacter). Acetic acid and malic acid give vinegar its sour taste. Apple cider vinegar in available in most supermarkets.
