I’ve always wanted to cook with different flavors of vinegar, but never was quite brave enough. So, when I had the opportunity to try out some vinegar and glaze from Giusto, I said yes.

Pomegranate Sweet Fruit Vinegar

vinegarOur pomegranate sweet fruit vinegar ($9.99) is made from fruit juice, wine vinegar and grape juice. Using 20% pure pomegranate fruit juice brings a sweet distinguished taste unlike any other. Full bodied in flavor, this is perfect for dressings, marinades, glazes and as a dessert compliment.

My thoughts..

I’m not a huge pomegranate fan, but I have to say, this doesn’t smell or taste bad at all! When I initially opened it for the “sniff test,” I was expecting to smell, well, like vinegar. Yes, there is a hint of that vinegar smell, but mostly it’s just the smell of fresh pomegranate. It wasn’t overly sweet smelling, but just right. Of course, I had to dip my finger in and taste it..haha! While it’s definitely not something I would sit and drink, it wasn’t horrible. It definitely tastes better in a recipe! Speaking of recipes, you can use this, along with some maple syrup and olive oil, and roast Brussels sprouts!

Strawberry Sweet Fruit Vinegar

My thoughts..

Like the pomegranate vinegar, the strawberry vinegar was nice and sweet. There wasn’t too much of a vinegar smell to it, and when I tasted it, it was rather pleasant! The strawberry sweet vinegar is a nice one to use for a salad dressing. Make a nice strawberry vinegar dressing, and throw some almonds, pecans or walnuts on your salad, and you have something that is amazingly delicious!

My thoughts..

Since my surgery to repair my stomach, I have been able to eat anything I want. This means that I have my desire to cook again! I am forever trying new recipes, and this balsamic glaze is an amazing addition to any meats. It gives it a unique flavor, and really sets it apart from the rest. This is also good to drizzle on salad, instead of heavier cream dressings. There really is no end to what you can do with it!
