Sugar cane vinegar is a mild vinegar that you will see in frequent use in Philippine cooking, and on many islands where sugar cane is grown. It is compared to rice vinegar because of its mildness. Cane vinegar is not exactly sweet but instead has a mild sharp taste which is useful for pickling ingredients or making sauces.
You can find cane vinegar in many large grocery stores in the US. It is popular as an alternate vinegar to some traditional vinegars like wine or apple. Try cane vinegar with pork and chicken dishes or as a marinade to tenderize meat. Many like to add a touch to dressings for fruit salads since it will have little bite and but won’t interfere with natural fruit flavors.
