Just about to start my second batch of spicy runner bean chutney and realised I have picked up huge bottle of pickling vinegar (well know make, rhymes with Parsons)!

I do have a selection of other vinegars which I can use to get me out of trouble for now (white, cider, wine) but is the pickling vinegar any good for anything other than pickling (which I don't do).

I was tempted to try some of it in the chutney but didn't want to ruin it.

 

If you online now I would really appreciate any advice on this - Thanks for any help.

Already tried that......Google is usually my first port of call and either my search queries are rubbish or there's just nothing on there about using pickling vinegar for chutney aargh

Frustrating isn't it? This was needed for chutney but have managed to get by with combining some cider and white wine vinegar. Just don't really need pickling vinegar as we don't like piccalilli  so will take it back. Local Waitrose really good on returns but will make sure got my specs on next time doh

 

By the way - the spicy runner bean chutney tastes delish - just one small problem (when don't I have any!!) the hubby helped prep veg for recipe based on Hugh F W's Glutney and I forgot to tell him to remove seeds from over large courgettes - more like small marrows and they may well make it a bit rough to eat so we keeping this batch for ourselves.

One day I will make something without any problems angry

Do you mean malt vinegar? If so, great in chutneys.Also will clean stuff, though not as good as distilled for windows!

Kateuk makes things at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finkstuff and sometimes she does this too http://www54paintings.blogspot.com/ and also this http://finkstuff.weebly.com/

No Kate, it's a white distilled vinegar which as already been spiced, but is disguised to look like a large bottle of plain distilled vinegar.
