Vinegar

post #1 of 27

Reading the "Supersize Me" thread in IMO inspired this thread.

I would love that tasty vinagrette, but vinegar makes me feel like I can't breathe, like my throat is closing up. It doesn't last long, but it is very frightening and I don't know how long it could last. If its real mild I can maybe have 2 drops, but don't do it often - Even pickles or pepperocinis do this to me sometimes. Does this happen to anyone else?

Weird! Because a co-worker told me that he has ill effects from vinegar also..It makes him feel all closed up and hot...

We were talking about it because...umm...well, I drink pickle juice daily.
(there are more people that do this than myself...honestly!)

Most people think its weird..But vinegar has some good medicinal properties.

Perhaps you are allergic?

It does sound like an allergy. You might want to be tested. That can be life threatening.

The stronger the vinegar the worse it is.

I'd be really careful! Because the more times you expose yourself to something you're allergic to, the worse the reaction can become! I might hold off on ever eating it until whatever time you can go to the doc....

Ex. I had taken a UTI med several times. First time or two no probs. Third time - itched for a few days AFTER I finished my round of meds. I didn't think it was related to the med. 4th time - Swelled up all over (luckily pretty much everywhere but my throat) and had to go the ER! So be careful!

Yep, Vinegar has been used for thousands of years to good health and purpose..Not just a low cost effective cleaner.

Its great for bad cholesterol, kidneys and liver, fatique, weight loss, sunburns, and toothaches!

(and I love the taste of pickle juice too...and garlic also exists there which is also a GREAT medicinal helper)

Sorry to hear you may have an allergy, Rockcat!

hey the other day i went to wendys in an attempt to eat healthier with a side salad. I asked for italian dressing but they said "All we have like that is vinegarette" I said OK whatever. I look at the nutritional info and it had like 47% of my daily allowance of fat in it. I didn't even eat it.

I bet that you are maybe not allergic to the vinegar itself, but rather to what it is made from (corn or whatever), or a by-product of it, such as mold or yeast. So probably, if you tried a tiny bit of pure acetic acid in water, it wouldn't do anything.

MMmmm....vinegar.

I work at subway sandwiches, and one of the reasons I've worked there for 5 years is because we get a free meal everyday. And I pretty much just have a vinegar sandwich. Well, I get some meat, but I douse my sandwich in vinegar. It's soooo good. People think it's gross, but I love it.

I am also a picke juice drinker. I love pickle juice.

I used to do that as a kid! Every now and then I will sneak a gulp of it. There is something about pickles that makes my mouth water

I love pickles too.

I particularly love french fry sandwiches. You douse the french fries with salt and malt vinegar (just has to be malt vinegar) and put them on buttered bread and you have a delicious french fry sandwich.

My husband (Bruce ) laughed at me the first time he saw me do it until I told him he shouldn't knock it until he tried it. He took a bite and said he wouldn't have believed how good it was.

Now those little matchstick french fries from MacDonald's would never be good but any good Fish and Chips place would have the good fries.

Thanks for the warning. Of course, now that we're talking about it (and I'm the one who brought it up), I'm craving anything made with vinegar.

Okay, I have to try this. What kind of fries are we talking about here? Like, what thickness? (We don't have a lot of fish and chips places in the center of the US. )

The thicker the better. I suppose McDonalds fries would be better than no fries, but preferrably home-made type fat fries are best and you really have to have butter on the bread and malt vinegar and salt on the fries. This is not a sandwich for the dieters since it really is best with plain old white bread too.

Oh, there's plenty o' places that serve the thick fries (home fries, we call 'em) around here. It's just that, instead of fish, we serve them with barbecue. Sorry, that's "BBQ."

Besides, I don't do Micky D's.

What we call home fries are usually slices of potatoes or chunks of potatoes fried with onion. I like baked potatoes with my BBQ.

When our daughter first started to walk and talk I brainwashed her and kept telling her Micky D's was junk food and we didn't do junk food.

To reply to everything, if it's just white vinegar, try Basalmic Vinegar. My favorite salad dressing is made with it, you can order Penzy's vinegar and oil dressing base and go from there. It's THE best.
I like to drink pickle juice too, and pepperoncini juice too!
The french fry sandwiches sound yummy!!!

I carry a flask of pickle juice with me when I'm working outdoors in the hot hot summer. It helps to replace the sodium lost when you perspire as well as some of the liquids.

All these people who drink pickle juice. I don't feel so bad-maybe I should carry some when I am landscaping outside!!!!
