As Margaret Briggs said, "Ancient civilizations were quick to recognize the versatility of vinegar. The Babylonians used it as a preservative and Roman legionnaires used it as a beverage Cleopatra demonstrated it's solvent properties to win a bet. Hippocrates extolled its medicinal qualities, and when Hannibal crossed the Alps, it was vinegar which helped pave the way."
Come see Master Gardeners Mary and Mary Anna at the Greene County Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 12th as they demonstrate how to create tasty vinegars to use in your kitchen! Demo time is 9:00.
