When facing an SOS situation in the kitchen, white vinegar is the ingredient of choice to save the day.
Perfect Poached Eggs
This is a chef’s trick of forming perfect poached eggs. To get your Eggs Benedict just right, add a few tablespoons of white vinegar to the water. It helps keep the white formed. It also works on cracked eggs. Add some to the boiling water and it ensures that the whites won’t leak out of the cracks.
Fresh Leafy Greens
If you find that your leafy greens have wilted in the sun, vinegar can help perk them right up. Soak your veggies in ice water with a little bit of vinegar to revive them. It’s strange but the acidity in the vinegar works wonders here.
Eliminate Onion Odours
Rub your hands with a bit of white vinegar after handling garlic or onions to get rid of the smell.
Better Tasting Beans
Ever wondered why Mexican food always comes with a sour taste profile? Well, vinegar when added to vegetables like broccoli or cauliflower and beans reduces the gassiness they might induce and in the process perk up the taste as well.
