We are constantly on the prowl for cool products!
Last weekend, me and the fam checked out the Argenta Farmers’ Market, located just across the river in North Little Rock. I love farmers’ markets and I found the Argenta one to be well-run, providing consumers with an excellent opportunity to support local businesses.
One booth was selling various bottles of olive oils and balsamic vinegars. In particular, a bottle of white grapefruit balsamic vinegar really stood out.
The vinegar is a product of Italy, but bottled in Gamaliel, Arkansas at the Raimondo Family Winery. Bottles can be purchased on the website ($18), as well as found at the Argenta Market ($19.99) across the street from the farmers’ market.
It looks like Raimondo Winery offers an excellent selection, but I’d be hard-pressed to sway from the white grapefruit. The citrus taste isn’t so overwhelming. It’s subtle and won’t make you slightly grimace upon consumption (like so many stronger balsamic vinegars often do).
I decided to toss one tablespoon of the vinegar with some mixed greens, carrots, tomatoes, and salmon. It made for a satisfying and healthy lunch. And although the $20 price tag is a bit steep, keep in mind this stuff is aged for a minimum of 12 years….and a little of it goes a long way.
I’ve never had a white grapefruit vinegar but it sounds like it would be a nice change from typical champagne or white wine vinegars.
