Vinegar is one of those indispensable pantry items. It can tenderize meat, make buttermilk, add fluff to cakes and rice and even reduce saltiness in soups or other foods. Vinegar is also a well-known ingredient in marinades and dressings, but how about sweets? Here's a vinegar-pie recipe from White House Foods: Blend 1 1/2 cups of sugar with 1/2 cup melted, unsalted butter in a medium bowl. Whisk in 3 large eggs, 2 tablespoons of white distilled or apple-cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract until thoroughly combined.

Step into the Secolari shop at The Mall in Columbia, and you'll feel as though you're in a Tuscan farmhouse rather than a suburban shopping center. The walls are lined with stainless-steel containers, called fusti, filled with 20 different olive oils and 14 types of vinegar and aged balsamic. There's bread for sampling, along with other gourmet items proffered on rustic wooden tables designed by the store owners and made by a local lumber company. Champagne mimosa vinegar, basil-flavored olive oil, pear ginger wasabi balsamic, blackberry with roasted pepper vinegar and blood orange olive oil are some of Secolari's most unusual and popular flavors.

Q.Thank you for printing the vinegar treatment for foot fungus. My husband has had so-called jungle rot since his days as a soldier in Vietnam. It's been incurable, but now it is all but gone, with only a few soaks needed every so often to keep it from coming back. My father, an eye doctor, told an elderly patient about vinegar. She was about to have a toenail amputated by another doctor because the fungus could not be cured. She started soaking her foot and saved her toenail. A.Dermatologists groan when we write about home remedies for nail fungus.

When my mind turns to vinegar, I think of pickles, and barbecue sauces and evocative nicknames. Vinegar helps transform cucumbers into pickles. Vinegar's power to tenderize meats puts it at the heart of the best barbecue sauces. And whenever I hear the word "vinegar," I am reminded of Vinegar Bend Mizell. His real name is Wilmer David Mizell. He was a pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals and later the Pittsburgh Pirates. I never saw him play. I didn't follow those teams. I simply loved the name.

Food fads come and go. A taste sensation one day turns dull the next. Time to move on to something else.Currently, vinegar is the latest darling of professional chefs. The puckery liquid is used to deglaze saute pans to create a small sauce, reducing the need for butter and cream in the process. Various herb vinegars are stirred into low-fat yogurt for a new kind of salad dressing.But be careful; not just any old vinegar will do. Plain old vinegar is just sour wine (vin aigre). Chefs are partial to good red-wine vinegar.

I have a 3-year-old and am expecting a new baby in a few weeks. I hate to use harsh chemicals to clean our house and usually rely on good old soap and hot water, sometimes with vinegar or baking soda. I use bleach or Bon Ami sparingly for some things. I found a recipe for a home cleaner spray -- a simple mixture of white vinegar, water and a few drops of essential oil for fragrance. I spray this mixture everywhere, confident that I could eat it if I had to. It does a great job on the stainless kitchen sink, microwave, countertops and bathroom sink.

I got out of my exercise routine over the holidays and am only gradually getting back into shape. My sore muscles are slowing me down and I wonder if you have any home remedies to relieve these aches and pains.A relaxing soak in a warm bath after exercise can work wonders. One reader suggests putting 2 cups of cider vinegar into the bath water for additional relief.A skier offers another idea. He takes 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water after a day on the slopes. The idea is to neutralize the lactic acid buildup in muscles after heavy exercise.

Drivers roaring up and down the Jones Falls Expressway often find themselves smelling pickles or sniffing fresh potato salad.Most people just think it's their imagination or blame it on the pungent odors that envelop Baltimore on sultry nights or humid days.A few people identify a group of old industrial buildings at Cold Spring Lane as "the pickle works." This identification is nearly correct. But you won't find any cucumbers here.Those who call it the vinegar works get the A-plus.A few more might even recognize the fieldstone and frame buildings alongside the Central Light Rail Line and not far from the expressway as the Melvale Distillery, once the largest liquor distillery in the state.

Frequently, especially in old recipe books, a recipe will call for just "vinegar." Which kind is it referring to -- cider or white vinegar? The name vinegar is from the French vin aigre, or bad (sour) wine, but, in fact, vinegar can be made from any fruit or grain. It is the product of a two-step method. In the first step, yeasts turn the grapes (or apples or barley or rice) into alcohol, resulting in wine (or cider, ale or rice wine). In the second step, bacteria acts upon the alcohol to turn it into acid, and you wind up with wine vinegar or cider vinegar or malt vinegar or rice vinegar.

Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth), which is printed here. This week, Elaine Pelc weighs in on barbecuing. Grilling can be a very healthful cooking method that does not lack in flavor. The grill's flames help to develop rich, smoky flavors in some pretty standard fare. Cooking on the grill can be so versatile, you can prepare appetizers, side dishes, main courses and even dessert.

It's supposedly good for you to eat pork or cabbage or black-eyed peas at New Year's, and for my last post of the year I offer you this recipe for “caviar” made with black-eyed peas. It's a variant of a recipe for the 1970s in a Time-Life book that The Sun published in 2000. It has been quite serviceable for the holiday in our house. Here are a couple of things to consider. Dried black-eyed peas are better than canned, because you can have more control over whether they get mushy.

When I reached for one of this season's final tomatoes, I got a surprise. It had bruised and was emitting white foam. In another time and place, that tomato, as injured as it was, would have gone into the stewing caldron. Bruised, soft, mushy, reject tomatoes found a welcome at our Guilford Avenue home. September was our ketchup-making month. This was a house where my grandmother and her sister made so much from scratch, from their own clothes to their laundry and kitchen soap.

Vinegar is one of humanity's oldest condiments, and when it comes to mealtimes, it can be among the home cook's best friends. Vinegar is made by acetic fermentation, a process that basically converts alcohol into acid. Most countries produce their own vinegars, typically based on the most popular alcohol there. So, France and Italy produce wine vinegars. Spain brings you sherry vinegar. Asians distill rice wine (e.g. sake) vinegar, while Great Britain creates vinegar from beer (malt vinegar)

Few endeavors in life are as rewarding and frustrating as having a fig tree in your yard. On the plus side, it produces loads of ripe fruit. On the minus side, it produces loads of ripe fruit. The fruit attracts birds. They peck the fruit, knocking juicy bits off the tree and onto cars parked below. A fallen fig leaves a tenacious stain, one that even a high-pressure hose has trouble dislodging. Combine these fig stains with the droppings deposited by feasting birds, and for a few weeks in the summer cars residing under the trees look as though they have been trashed by paint-ball-wielding vandals.

In a column I read, you suggested using diluted vinegar to eliminate dandruff. What measurement of vinegar to water do you recommend, and when is it used -- after the shampoo or before? I'd never heard of this remedy, and since normal dandruff shampoos do not seem to help me, I am anxious to try this new idea. A number of people have found that rinsing with dilute vinegar (either before or after shampooing) can discourage dandruff. The acidity makes it hard for yeast to thrive, and dandruff is caused at least in part by yeast that live on the skin.

When you eat steamed crabs are you a dipper, a swiper or a sauce-maker? A dipper removes the crab meat from the shell then drops it in a bowl of liquid, usually apple-cider vinegar or melted butter. A swiper rubs the crab meat quickly over the bits of seasoning clinging to the shell. A sauce-maker combines ingredients, usually mustard, mayonnaise and ketchup, then drags the crab meat through this creation. There is also another option: None of the above. That is, just eating the crab meat as soon as it pops out of the shell.
