Traditionally many people think of vinegar as cider vinegar produced with apples. Today more types of vinegars are produced. These include balsamic, wine, malt, and rice vinegars. More obscure vinegars include plum, coconut, cane, sherry, and date vinegars.
Types of vinegar have been around for centuries. It is even mentioned in the Old Testament and the New Testament. Writers have written numerous books about vinegar including: Vinegar: 1001 Practical Uses by Margaret Briggs, The Vinegar Book by Emily Thacker, Vinegar: 1001 Practical Household Uses by L&k Designs, and Balsamico!: A Balsamic Vinegar Cookbook by Pamela Sheldon Johns.
