Storing Vinegar

There is nothing really special to store vinegar. Once it is open, store it in room temperature, but away from direct sunshine. There is no need to store it in refrigerator.

Fun Culture

Ginger Vinegar

“Jiang Cu” mandarin; “Guang Cho” Cantonese

We will cover more vinegar fun facts in Chinese culture in June 2022.
