At my local mega food store yesterday I saw they had Kikko rice wine vinegar for 50 cents per bottle with a little coupon on the bottle. Keep an eye out. If you make Thai sweet chili sauce; it's the shizzle. Gotta use RW vinegar, though. I've tried it with several different vinegars and , you need rice wine vinegar to make it.

I wonder if that is any relation to the Japanese "mirin" i hear such
good things about?

Mirin is not rice wine vinegar. It's more like sake... drinkable.

befor i purchase one of the big bottles.

I usually buy the least expensive one I can find because I don't use
it often and end up replacing the bottle when I want to use it again.
AFAIK, it's not fortified and goes bad... just like any other wine.

Mirin is the wine, this stuff would be the vinegar obtained from "rice wine gone bad" as any vinegar is. Easy as heck to make your own vinegars. My knowledge of Asian goodies is limited. I just use this stuff for Thai sweet chili sauce.

Unfortunately, I've had a batch of wine go bad once; and I ended up with 5 gallons of vinegar. Great vinegar, though.

Kikkoman is made in Walworth, WI; so I wouldn't use the stuff for much beyond what I use it for. 50 centavos a bottle is the attraction, here.

10 oz bottle , it says distributed in San Fran (if your "SF" denotes your geography.) There will be a coupon on the neck of the bottle for $1.50.

My real name is Greg, by the way. Greg"orio", ya know? I go by Gorio in the Spanish speaking world.

Sorry if I rubbed you the wrong way. Sheldon just needed the response he wnated. I don't use a ton of EVOO, since I've curtailed my Italian cooking. My latest fave is unfiltered sunflower oil. MMM.

I guess you wouldn't buy a Honda because it's made in Marysville, Ohio.
Kikkoman is a Japanese company that has roots going back more than 4
centuries. However they do not do all their production in Japan.

Wow! I wasn't aware that Kikko had such a history. I just know they brew their soy sauce (at least in the USA) in Walworth, WI. I like the soy and have slready used the rice vinegar, and it is very neutral compared to other vinegars. The rice wine bottle just says "distributed by:". I hate that. Tell me where the heck the stuff was made. You get this same shady citation/reference with olive oils.

Either way, the rice vinegar is good for the purpose of Thai sweet. All I care about at this stage.

i think it would be a mistake to think of it as 'sweet wine.' it has a
pretty viscous consistency:

History of Mirin:
The use of mirin is said to have begun over 400 years ago. Although it was
used for drinking in the beginning, it has been used for only cooking since
it was made to be thicker and sweeter.

http://japanesefood.about.com/od/saucecondiment/p/mirinprofile.htm

i don't think drinking even a small glass would be appealing. it provides
a nice glaze for broiled meats, and is used in making teriaki sauce.

there's a little more dope he

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mirin

but the predominant taste is sweet, with a little alcohol note at the end,
so it will be very different than a rice vinegar.

blake

kikkoman products are perfectly respectable (if expensive) in my opinion.
(i have come to prefer soy sauce from china, like pearl river bridge, but
that's a different style.) as far as i know, they use the same processes
and apply the same quality control as kikkoman in japan.

I became an accidental but complete convert to rice flour

Sooo...ill give the rice wine (mirrin) a try, i dont like the Chinese
rice wine, but i have heard so many good things about the mirrin that im
curious to try it. I often use Japanese sake instead of the Chinese
rice wine.
