Salty, Sweet, Sour and Bitter.. .and the new Savory.

We have four basic tastes and perhaps a 5th if we add the edemame advertising campaign’s savory. Sour is Number One with me!  Give me a dill pickle over a donut any day.  Add a tall rib of celery and that’s lunch.

Vinegar is categorized as sour has is my favorite taste since childhood.  Pickles, pickled peppers, and pickled vegetables are fantastic food products that are easy to make at home. If you cannot find cucumbers, but zucchini are available, you can pickle them. Many people cannot tell them apart. 


A number of different types of vinegar can be used to make pickles, deglaze pans, marinate meats for enhanced flavor and tenderness, vinaigrettes, sauces, and even desserts. White vinegar and newspaper make a good combination for cleaning windows!
