Balsamic vs. Apple Cider Vinegar?

Dr. B and the Team:

Both Balsamic and Apple Cider Vinegar seem to appear often in your articles.


1) What is the major difference in the two?


2) What have you found to be the best way to use the two?


Thanks!

I've heard that store bought Balsamic can have sugar (the enemy) in it. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) with EVOO makes a great salad dressing. Also, 3 times a day take 1-2 tsps of ACV with 1-2 tsps raw honey in water. Great before meals to help with digestion, good skin, good nails/hair and muscle soreness.
Make sure the it contains "Mother", the cloudy substance in ACV from naturally occurring pectin in apple residues.
Go to bragg.com for more info on ACV.

Thanks, BB!

A Vinaigette (Vinegar plus EVOO) is a staple of mine.

However, the team seems to still recommend both Balsamic AND Apple Cider.

I was just wondering if there were times when it was best to use one over the other.

By the way...isn't the distinction you are making between Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and the typical vinegars one buys in stores...and not neccesarily Balsamic?

(I'll check out that site!)

Any mention of vinegar, of any variety, by us is simply motivated by preferance in terms of flavour.
