A few months after praising the quality of Brightland's olive oils, I opted to try more products from the brand. My taste buds were immediately drawn to the Vinegar Duo Set, which, similar to the olive oils, promises distinct flavours deriving from quality ingredients grown on family-run farms in California. When the bottles came in the mail, my husband and I improvised a salad recipe so we could put them to use right away (yes, even at 9:30 p.m.).
These Brightland vinegars are a major upgrade, and I have a feeling we'll finish them in a matter of weeks.
Admittedly, I had never paid attention to vinegars up until that point. I was using a generic grocery store kind for the Haitian spice mix I frequently make, but it was hardly something I considered a cooking essential. In fact, I would only repurchase it once a year because it was mostly collecting dust in the cabinet. These Brightland vinegars are a major upgrade, and I have a feeling we'll finish them in a matter of weeks.
First, the Parasol vinegar. Described as a "raw champagne vinegar that is double fermented with California chardonnay grapes and juicy Navel and Valencia oranges," it has a smooth texture and bright, citrusy flavour. Similarly, the Rapture vinegar, which is a raw balsamic vinegar made from fermented zinfandel grapes and blackberries, has a bold and rich flavour. Both bottles share a fruit-forward flavour palate, making them enjoyable with salads, cheeses, grilled tomatoes, breads, and sliced fruits. Together, they make a delicious duo that has earned its place as our new favourite pantry staples. I bet you'll fall in love with it too.
