In the beginning of 2016 my wife (pregnant with our 3rd son) and I began experimenting with a pineapple vinegar recipe. We were learning about the benefits of probiotics and bromelain while enrolled in a Health Coaching certification program. The idea for a product that would combine these benefits was born. Starting from a mason jar in the pantry, to home beer making kits, we gradually fine tuned and stepped up our recipe. Testing it out on ourselves as well as friends and family along the way. In March of 2018 we signed a lease on a commercial kitchen and received a Dept. of Health certification for our process. Vintage Vinegars 'Raw Pineapple Vinegar' is steel cast, small batch, locally sourced and produced on Oahu, HI. My wife Uluwehi and I are proud to offer a product that brings quality and variety to the growing number of people seeking to incorporate healthier choices in their daily lives.
Frequently Asked QUESTIONS
How can I use it?
* Sip it/Mix it - We bottle at a pH of 3.0 - 3.2, this is much less acidic than the typical 2.5 commonly found in table vinegar. So it's easier on the pallet when consuming 'straight up' or mixing in a tonic or cocktail.
* Pickling - Pickled sweet onions are a favorite in our house and fresh fruit is a great option for a 'quick pickle' as well. Just pack a jar with sliced fruit or veggies, add 1-2 tsp of salt and top with raw pineapple vinegar. Let it rest in the fridge overnight or longer depending on your taste.
* Dressings/Sauces/Marinades - Sub our 'Raw Pineapple Vinegar' in for any vinegar used in your favorite salad dressing and sauce recipes for a different spin on things. The fat digesting enzyme, bromelain, found in pineapples makes our vinegar an excellent tenderizer. Incorporate it in a marinade to help make your BBQ or Roast even more delectable.
