Fresh Fruit Vinegars by Mange Review

I had a wonderful chance of reviewing 2 samples of Fresh Fruit Vinegars by Mange.

I chose to review: Green Apple - Pomme Verte and Blackberry


I have to be honest - the only thing I wished was that the samples sent to me were bigger. It takes time to take pictures, write, and post reviews.

Uses:
  • With Fresh Fruit Vinegars you can choose to serve them so many different ways. I decided to use my samples in salads. 
  • You can also use them to flavor marinades.
  • Mixing them with liquor and pouring over ice for a refreshing cocktail would taste good to.
“If you’ve ever tried cooking with a fresh fruit vinegar, chances are you weren’t able to stop,” says Christopher Spivak, owner and founder of Mangé, a Massachusetts-based company that specializes in gastronomic cuisine.

“Most people think that if you’ve tried one vinegar, you’ve tried them all – I certainly felt that way,” recalls Spivak. “That was until I traveled to France and experienced a real fresh fruit vinegar. At that moment, I knew there was an undeniable difference between fresh fruit vinegar and every other vinegar on the market.”

I decided to take the Blackberry Fresh Fruit Vinegar to make a Zesty Quinoa Salad. This filled up a medium sized mixing bowl. It's a great recipe for a party. If you want less, you can divide the recipe in 1/2.

I used the Green Apple - Pomme Verte in a green leafy veggie salad. I just mixed some with olive oil. Boom - I had a healthier dressing.


History: 

Fruit vinegar dates back to the 18th century when berries were preserved in vinegar. Today, Spivak is putting a modern twist on the classic with Mangé’s line of exquisite fresh fruit vinegars. Unlike infused or syrup-based fruit vinegars, Mangé’s fresh fruit vinegars are made using fruit that has been picked at its peak, puréed and preserved in vinegar.

“Our process allows the vinegar to capture the true essence of the fruit’s natural flavor,” explains Spivak.

These vinegars are simple to use and highly versatile, fresh fruit vinegars are light enough to drink from a spoon, yet strong enough to marinate a ceviche. From home cooks to professional chefs, Mangé’s full line of fresh fruit vinegars offer eleven flavors that are sure to please every palate,

Flavors:

Blackberry, Blood Orange, Cherry, Fig, Green Apple, Mango, Passion Fruit, Pear, Raspberry, Red Pepper and White Peach. Unlike other infused or syrup-based fruit vinegars, Mangé’s fresh fruit vinegars are made using fruit that has been picked at its peak, puréed and preserved in vinegar. The process allows the vinegar to capture the essence of each fruit’s natural flavor, creating a brilliant burst of fruitful flavor that can be added to any appetizer, entrée, dessert or cocktail.

I never heard of such a thing. Too bad I am not a gastronome, because I would sure learn a thing or two here about good food. I'm more a frozen burrito type of guy, alas.

I have never heard of this either, but it definitely looks interesting to cook with.

I hate it when companies send puny size products for review. I have started limiting what I will accept because it does take time to do the reviews/promote. Jason's line of work is mostly online and he is always telling me that bloggers do more for a product than the product does for us.

On topic- the salad does sound super tasty! We haven't had quiona before, but I see a lot of recipes for it that look amazing!
