From Hippocrates to old wives' tales, apple cider vinegar has been touted as the miracle cure-all for everything from coughs and colds to wart removal and stomach ulcers. Some people even clean their house with it. But that's not recommended for Hall's Apple Market's apple cider vinegar— it's too good for that. Made of 60 per cent Mc- Intosh apples and 40 per cent derived from a mix of Cortland, Empire and Spartan apples grown on the fourth-generation farm in Brockville, Ontario, the cider is aged naturally for two years — first in stainless steel tanks then in oak barrels to mellow the bite of the vinegar and impart a slight smokiness. And while we can't say for sure that it will cure your aunt's gout, Hall's vinegar is unpasteurized, unfiltered and comes with the Mother, so you know it's good. It's no wonder the Fraser brothers order it by the jugful for their two restaurants — The Rowan and Fraser Café. Perhaps that's because they drink it by the glassful?]
