I was cleaning up the kitchen and came across the bottle of vinegar that I started OH SO LONG AGO.

I remember we stuffed the manky bits in a jar and let them get mankier (is that a word?) and after 2 weeks or so strained them off through cheese cloth and stored a snaptop 750mL worth.

Yeah.  I remember trying the vinegar about six months out and it was disgusting.  But I didn't pour it out.  I closed the bottle and forgot about it on the back of the counter.  NOW it tastes like vinegar.  It's rather assertive, but will be nice for vinegrettes.  I don't detect any lingering pear flavor.  But as low maintenance kitchen experiments go, I'm not disappointed.

BONUS: I found the dried scraps from the paste de genoa which are NOT mouldy, so I do have something to show for those efforts.

Maybe I can come up with an A&S entry along the lines of food preservation successes and failures and unexpected occurences.
