Those four jars of peanut butter and the four tubs of cream cheese (okay, only three are left now) represent fairly pedestrian shopping this summer on the part of my visitors.  But when it comes to vinegars, this house’s collection has definitely been enriched by some classy recent additions.
I can understand the kids not trusting the inch left in that old bottle of plain white vinegar on the right.  For all I know it dates back to the 1950s.  So  whoever feels the urge to make a salad trots off to our biggest tourist attraction, Wegman’s (Niagara Falls is second biggest.)  But they don’t seem to trust each other either, so we end up with yet another yuppie acquisition.  Raspberry, organic, Modena, wine, distilled, Tuscan, balsamic – how many things can one do with vinegar? 
When I gathered them to put away together, they looked so attractive I just had to show you.

  1. Well, you can always use white vinegar as a substitute for Windex (cut it half and half with water) or for fabric softener/Febreze (it both softens and deodorizes; pour it wherever in your washing machine you'd put liquid fabric softener). Those are my Hints from Heloise for today!
