At GENNY GRAHAM we use Aspall Organic Cyder Vinegar, a Great Taste Award winning product, as one of the ingredients in our own Award Winning pepper jellies. It’s a win win! It is made from organically grown desert and cyder apples that are crushed and allowed to ferment naturally over approximately 2-4 weeks, then bottled as an unpasteurised finished product. Apple cyder vinegar when abbreviated is also known as ACV.
Although our products so far are not fully organic, we have selected this organic cyder vinegar because it is free from synthetic chemicals, and made from all natural ingredients. As an organic product, it is higher in nutritional value than a heavily processed vinegar. It is interesting to note that in 1946 the Aspall Cyder Ltd company was a founding member of the Soil Association, promoting the importance of organic food.
While mainly made up of acetic acid and citric acid, it is well known that apple cyder vinegar has many health benefits. Scientific evidence has proved that it helps to reduce high cholesterol and high blood pressure, it can help relieve indigestion, aid in detoxifying the body and aid weight loss. It has also been attributed to helping in the prevention of cancer, so you can conclude that by using our products, some of those health benefits may be imparted to you. We can benefit from the magnesium, iron, phosphorus, manganese, amino acids, and antoxidants, that help to make up this powerful ingredient, and the wonderful thing is that it is suitable for coeliacs, vegetarians and vegans.
As one of the very important components in our pepper jellies, you can have confidence that the slightly cloudy vinegar we have selected is of superb quality. It has a clean, crisp taste and supports the character of other ingredients. The presence of the organic cyder vinegar in our pepper jellies is one of the reasons why they make great marinades and salad dressings.
