CLOSED: Supreme Date Vinegar Giveaway

I love to try all sorts of vinegar. It has been one of those few must-have condiments on my shelf for the last 12 years, which is about the time I discovered how much it could help aid my digestion after eating, especially all of those meals in which I completely over-did it on the spice level simply because I love the heat of certain types of cuisine. Now I make all sorts of salad dressings with different types of vinegar and make that part of my daily meals.

The one question that people almost always ask me about is whether a particular vinegar is halal or not and whether or not it has alcohol in it. I’ve addressed that issue over on The Vinegar Page I created to help shed some light on the topic. Typically it is always best to ask the manufacturer of the product to get some reassurance as to how it is made and whether or not any alcohol is added to the final product. It’s also always a good idea to speak to a scholar and/or research the topic further if you’re still unsure. IFANCA (the Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America has researched and written on the topic extensively, as well and you may have found other halal-certification agencies who have done the same. 

That’s what brings me to the object of this post- date vinegar. I have to say that the first time I saw this type of vinegar in stores I didn’t actually think it sounded too appealing. I bought a bottle from a Middle Eastern grocer and it sat on my shelf for a very long time, but I was looking for a reason to try it so when I ran out of other vinegar, I made a salad dressing with it and was stunned at the depth of flavor it had. It was sort of like a balsamic vinegar in darkness but without the mustiness of the grape. In fact, I thought it had a more profound flavor than other vinegar I had tried, and because it cooked just the same way as other vinegar I’ve since experimented with it in other dishes in which balsamic vinegar was suggested

Supreme Vinegar, LLCSome time later I was told about the Supreme Vinegar product and given a sample to try. Since I had already had some experience with other date vinegar products, I was much more inclined to do some comparison tasting this time around and after asking the owner more questions about its production, I was assured that the product was being processed with the intention of gaining halal certification and in the meantime making it to the standards of a halal product (i.e. no alcohol added and following a standard process of making vinegar from the dates). I found the taste to be a cross between apple cider vinegar and a very light balsamic, perhaps a white balsamic. In fact, I have used this particular product in lieu of apple cider vinegar on many occasions now because it seems to have a similar potency of ACV.

Here’s what they have to say briefly about the history of date vinegar: “Date vinegar is a popular condiment in both the Middle East and North Africa, stretching back to the time of the ancient Babylonians. A delicious alternative to other vinegars such as balsamic or apple cider, our natural date vinegar is fermented using only natural date juice with no other vinegars or flavors are added to make it a unique and healthy addition to salads, stews, and other recipes. “
