I have a Mother of Vinegar! I’ve had it for over ten years now and it continuous to produce vinegar. I must admit though that it started out as a mistake. A Mother of vinegar is a bacterial entity developed from fermenting cellulose. It turns alcohol and oxygen into acetic acid, i.e. it produces vinegar.

Did I mention I have one foot in Texas? The result from that; we eat plenty of TexMex food. It's probably the one type of food that's mostly on the menu in our home. I don't know if this video is entirely true, but it's a cute story and it made me laugh when I saw it, so I couldn't help but sharing it with you.

Is there a difference between stock and broth? I had an old relative that was a chef and this is how I learned the difference. It’s basically the same thing, except for one major difference; broth is a seasoned version of stock. My relative used to say that; broth is nice to drink on a cold winter’s day, stock in a bowl and you call for the chef.
