Vinegar is a familiar kitchen cupboard product that has been recently dusted off by the organic food revolution and promoted in its raw form. Unfiltered, raw cider vinegar is more than simply the ingredient that powers vinaigrette or goes with salt onto chips. Its probiotic qualities, like yogurt’s dramatically diversify the applications of this natural super-food.
