The Most Versatile Apple Cider Vinegar Turned Out to Be the Cheapest

Apple cider vinegar is a popular ingredient with many uses. It spices pork, spices to sweets and sauces, and some people even drink it. To find a widely available ACV that would work in a variety of applications, Cook’s Illustrated tested six different vinegars in skillet sauce, barbecue sauce, and coleslaw.

The winner was super-simple, super-cheap (seventeen cents an ounce!) Heinz, whose tasters considered “a bouncy pan sauce, mild sweet sauce and balanced barbecue sauce with its bright, moderate acidity and clear apple notes.” However, when it came to tasting vinegar straight from the bottle, tasters have found unfiltered varieties ( like Bragg’s ) to be much more flavorful and complex, so be your target if you’re planning on drinking ACV.
