With a history dating back over 10,000 years, and mentions in the bible, vinegar has been used through the ages - and still today - as a food, drink, seasoning, medicine, a preserving agent, and even as an all natural cleaner.
The word "vinegar" comes from the compounding of two French words: "vin" and "aiger." Meaning "sour wine", it was often heard angrily muttered when a cask of wine got a crack in it. Any liquid with sugar will turn to vinegar when exposed to air.
