Does vinegar go bad?
I mean, it's vinegar, right?
I have some old, and some very old vinegar. For instance, I have nearly full bottle of Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar with the best by date of 3/28/2010. I have a nearly empty bottle of Champaign vinegar whose expiration date is worn off - I don't even see it any more, but it's got to be at least as old as the above mentioned apple cider vinegar. Then, I have a bottle of vinegar that was gifted to me years and years ago, which I keep forgetting about. It's in a brown bottle with a rubber cork type lid that has the wire clamp down thingy. It has a sprig of what I think is tarragon in it. When I open the bottle, the vinegar smells good, but I'm kind of afraid to taste it. Then again, vinegar is used as a preservative.
Can you tell I'm cleaning out my pantry?
