1700s Botanical Vinegar Gift Box – From New Orleans & Martha Washington. Great on Ice Cream too!
Botanical Infused Vinegars – A 1700s favorite!
“Vinaigriers”, primarily enslaved or free black people, fermented vinegar from sugar cane juice and sold their vinegars in market stalls in New Orleans or door-to-door. Vinegars infused with elder flower and rose flower are mentioned in Martha Washington’s cookbook along with stain glass candy, another favorite treat of the era.
Vinegar… On Ice Cream?
Our authentic botanical vinegars taste great on salads, French fries, or sandwiches. But a True Treats staff favorite is adding a few dashes of the elder flower or rose flower vinegar to vanilla ice cream. Try it! You’ll love it.
