Pineapple Vinegar

Buy $7.95

Rancho Gordo’s tangy Pineapple Vinegar gets its tropical undertones the old-fashioned way, from fresh fruit juice fermented with brown sugar. Smooth and mildly acidic, the condiment can be used to tenderize meats, brighten stews and beans, and kick up simple green salads.
