Rice Wine Vinegar
Characteristics: slightly mellower than distilled white vinegar
Made with: fermented rice
Commonly used in: marinades and broths
Rice wine vinegar - also known as rice vinegar - is a great option if you're looking for a different option to the common distilled white vinegar. It's not as sharp and is a mellower acid that brightens any dish. It's a great ingredient to cut through any heavy flavors that need balance.
Rice wine vinegar is great in marinated onions, helping to round out the flavor of all the spices added to the brine.
