I was happy to relocate my favorite vinegar supplier in Eugene, Susanna’s Vinegars. She had a table at the side wing of the Holiday Market, a location I only discovered on the last day of the market!
The vinegar table ended up being an example of buying for myself when also shopping for others. Susanna’s display of bottles is always invigorating as she revels in the use of interesting shapes and presentations. All that in additon to great flavors!
In this latest swoop I picked up a small pyramidal bottle of Apricot Chili vinegar. This is a new flavor for me, as I was seduced by the plump apricots tumbled in the golden liquid. I’m looking forward to deglazing pan fried chicken with this wonderful concoction.
I also bought a large fish shaped bottle of Garlic Spice Vinegar with a smaller bottle of beautifully arranged chili’s layered to create Chili Vinegar. I grew up with chili vinegar in the house- which we would drizzle ontop of steak. Both of these vinegars are great drizzled on hearty winter greens, beef stew, and chilli as a finishing seasoning touch.
I’ve been so entranced by these submerged vinegars I haven’t even restocked on Susanna’s flavored balsamic vinegars. They range from spice touched, to citrus and fruit flavored.
I hope to catch her again this spring when the Eugene Farmer’s Market opens back up.
