Fun Facts: Vinegar was discovered over 10,000 years ago.  It was a cask of wine that had gone bad. So, essentially, wine is fruit that has gone bad and vinegar is wine that has gone bad. The Babylonions were the first to spice it and the Romans were the first to drink it as a beverage {that totally just gave me the sours, lol}. And the Greeks used it to pickle foods {my kind of peeps there}. And vinegar has been used to treat scurvy and wounds by Americans during war time. Truly, vinegar is quite historical.

Vinegar also has many health benefits. One that I found particularly interesting is that vinegar can help with heightening levels of Serotonin in the body. Low levels of Serotonin go hand and hand with depression and anxiety. So, enjoying more vinegar could make you happy. :)

One of my personal favorite ways to enjoy vinegar is over sliced cucumber and onion. I think that is a country thing, so I wanted to add that here for all of you city folks who might be reading this. Just chop up a cucumber and an onion {I like any of the green stalk varieties best} and then pour over some vinegar. I generally water the vinegar down just a bit. And I add a little salt and pepper. Yum!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I have heard of that, too, but not sure that I have ever tried that either. I keep seeing all these cakes with sour cream in them, as well. For some reason, that sounds really good to me.

  23. courtney b says:

    yum this post made me so hungry. I love the coleslaw recipe, better yet I love the picture. Looks like something right out of a magazine.

  24. Michelle T says:

    IEveryone knows vinegar is good for cooking. Most people know vinegar makes a great cleaner, but raising serotonin levels?!! That’s epic. Totally epic.

    I still wonder who first decided to try drinking vinegar…. Who would think that it’s NOT going to kill you? (Totally got the sours too. It’s making my mouth water in a bad way.)

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      For real. If I hadn’t heard of people drinking it before, there is no way I would have been, “That looks tasty!” My daughter likes to freeze the juice from pickles and then eat it later. I tried that and it’s actually good, lol.

  25. Michelle T says:

    Pickle Popsicles?! I dunno about that…
