Did You Know
Rice vinegar is made from fermented rice and has a slightly sweet, mild flavor. Look for it with the other vinegars or with the Asian ingredients. Don't confuse rice vinegar with seasoned rice vinegar. Rice vinegar is plain, and seasoned rice vinegar contains other ingredients, as its name suggests.
