Winter melon is rich in vitamins and nutrients, and has long been prized in eastern Asia as an integral aspect celebratory meals. Though winter melon is a vegetable, this vinegar has a bright flavor, rounded out by a slight sweetness that can deceive the palate into thinking it's a fruit based vinegar. We love it as a vinaigrette, or diluted with sparkling water and a slice of lemon. It can also be a great dipping vinegar for tempura, or with pan fried dumplings mixed with a generous amount of pepper.
