That Surprisingly Taste Better
With vinegar being a common household staple, you might not have given it much thought during your experimental food prep sessions. If you love vinegar, these somewhat unusual suggestions will make you love vinegar even more. If you’re not a big fan, consider yourself a convert – you’re guaranteed to crave that asim-sarap-ngiti feeling after reading this!
Singkamas and Suha + Vinegar
Let’s start with a no-cook pairing: sawsawan for fruits! The sharpness of vinegar gets absorbed by bland singkamas sticks, while hardcore asim lovers love the sour-on-sour flavor of vinegar and tart pomelos (if you’re not that hardcore, make sure your pomelo is on the sweeter side).
Baby Potatoes + Salt + Vinegar
Love the salt and vinegar chips flavor? Here’s a handy hack that makes use of fresh baby potatoes.
Fruit + Sugar + Vinegar
Ever heard of a beverage that includes vinegar? Shrubs are refreshing summer drinks that combines vinegar, fruit and sugar. The vinegar adds a refreshing dash of tartness that balances out the fruit’s and sugar’s sweetness. Add a dash of alcohol and you’ve got yourself a new cocktail favorite!
Chocolate Cake + Vinegar
Nope, throwing those two things together isn’t a typo. Known as Depression Chocolate Cake (due to its prevalence in the Great Depression), the outcome of this recipe is anything but depressing. Adding a dash of vinegar in a standard Chocolate Cake recipe helps the cake rise as it bakes, resulting in a perfectly moist Chocolate Cake. Who would’ve thought, right?
