6 Ways to Kick Up the Flavor with Arvum Sherry Vinegars

Vinegars (like good wines) vary in flavor and complexity by grape varietal, and also by production method. Arvum is a co-op of over 1200 small grape growers and winemakers who follow traditional methods for growing and production. Their commitment to quality and tradition make their vinegars and vinegar sauces truly unique. These distinct and elegant sherry vinegars are surprisingly versatile. Here are a few ways to add a splash of "wow" to your next meal:

  • Combine the Muscatel Reserva with a few cloves of chopped garlic, a splash of Spanish olive oil, flor de sal and rosemary, and pour over chicken before baking
  • The lightly sweet flavors of Pedro Jimenez Reserva will make your next spinach strawberry salad sing!
  • For an easy appetizer, wrap canteloupe melon with thin slices of Spanish jamón and drizzle with Balsamic Cream
  • A fresh summer dessert: place a dollop of vanilla ice cream in a ripe nectarine or peach half, and drizzle with Arvum Arrope
  • Toss chopped mangos, blueberries and mint or basil with Balsamic Sauce and serve with pork or salmon
  • Drizzle roasted or grilled vegetables with Gran Reserva and serve with torn basil or rosemary
