Whether you create disasters or lip smacking savories, cooking is an experiment that requires constant learning and experimentation. It is only when we try out different new recipe combinations that we relish the taste of it, and then often start using such unfamiliar stuff in a familiar way in the food we cook to create something phenomenal, both nutritionally as well as taste-wise. Here we have for you, two such unconventional ingredients that most people do not usually know about, but which are mandatory for cooking good food. They are the Balsamic Vinegar and the Royal Quinoa.
The Balsamic Vinegar is a recent import from the Italian kitchens, but has a history of many years old. In ancient times it was a great possession to the Italians, who used it as gifts to show great respect and affection for each other. This was particularly so because the best Balsamic Vinegar was believed to have therapeutic powers that often healed serious ailments. The Middle ages also saw an extensive use of this balsamic vinegar nutrition, both as a cooking ingredient and a cordial, but it is the last decade that experienced the extensive revival of this ancient ingredient into modern kitchens worldwide, primarily because of its flavor and aroma.
This particular kind of vinegar is usually prepared from grape pressings of those grapes that have not been fermented into wine. After the grape juice has been extracted, it is then fermented in copper caldrons over wood fires, to reduce it by 40% of its original weight, and is then stored in barrels to form the vinegar. There are six different categories of Balsamic vinegar, which vary according to the levels of sweetness, mellowness and flavor in them, with the best Balsamic vinegar having the highest amount of all three. If you wish to try this balsamic vinegar too, then we recommend that you use it in salad, and artichokes, to best realize its flavor and aroma.
Another ancient ingredient that has now found its way into our kitchens is the royal Quinoa, which was originally an exceptional ancient grain, grown in the Andean region of South America. This edible grain that has a unique nutty flavor to it, is usually cooked the same way as rice and is very very nutritious, with a high of protein content. The Royal Quinoa health benefits are quite a lot, as being a super grain with high amounts of protein, manganese, antioxidants, magnesium, iron, calcium, and phytonutrients in it, it is highly beneficial for our bodies. Also the grain has high fiber content and is rich in anti oxidants, which help prevent the occurrence of both cancer and diabetes. The Royal Quinoa health benefits do not just end here, but provide far more than what anyone can imagine. Using the grain can help people control weight problems, get relief from acute and mild migraine, reduce hypertension and also receive vital energy for the body.
Hence, having discussed best balsamic vinegar nutrition useful ingredients which can be used in cooking, we would expect people to experiment with them in their kitchens, to produce new healthy, nutritious and tasty recipes every day.

Pic of the day - What Being Gluten-free Means to Me
Image by rosefirerising After being ill, seriously or less so, but all the time since shortly after 9/11 (yes, 01, *that* 9/11), I started trying to go gluten-free last summer. I haven't gotten it quite right yet. Having quite a few problems with contamination, and occasional flareups, but overall, it's been an incredible experience. I regularly tell people, "Going gluten-free has to be the best thing I've ever done for myself!" Here are some of the reasons why. I'm not accidentally biting my tongue and cheek all the time. Ow. I'm not thirsty all the time. I can walk up and down stairs without hurting. I can even carry my computer bag while doing it! My knees and hips don't hurt as much. No swelling. None. I even made it down to the floor, scrubbing, and back up again, by myself last weekend. It wasn't easy, but hey, I did it! I'm no longer taking 3 or 4 naps each weekend. This means I'm getting a LOT more accomplished! I'm not struggling to stay awake on the bus coming home from work. That means I don't miss my stop. 😉 And have to walk back. I sleep better. All through the night most of the time. I sleep less, and am better rested. I come home from a day at work and cook dinner. Smiling! I hardly ever get hives. No more crazy mad itching! No more scabs! (Well, I wish, but I get enough contamination, that this still happens more than I'd like. It is much better, though!) I've hardly been sick, for months! All kinds of things going around at the office, everyone else seems to be sick. I keep expecting to get sick, but so far, knock on wood, I'm doing pretty good. When I have gotten sick, it's short. A weekend. That's it. (Now just watch me come down with some dread illness in the next week or two!) When I walk places, I'm not being passed by EVERYONE! Sometimes I even pass someone else. I don't feel older than Moses watching my 85-year-old friend prance around the choir loft at church. I'm not dizzy. And I've stopped taking my dizziness meds. I haven't had a chance yet, but I think I could probably dance again! I'm much happier. Not just feeling better, but actually less sad, less depressed, more cheerful. Ridiculously cheerful. I'm less anxious, also, and don't feel as stressed. Basically, I feel more positive and hopeful. Food is tastier. Yummmmm. 🙂 I'm more satisfied by the food I eat, so I'm not as hungry. That means I eat less. That means I'm losing weight. Oh! Wow! Because I'm not as badly vitamin deficient as I was, I'm not constantly craving foods, especially not craving liver. Because I'm moving more and faster, I'm getting more done. Being more productive means I'm not as far behind and I'm not playing catch-up as much. I have more time to do the things I love. Because I'm healthier and happier I'm more fun to be around. That means my social life is better. I heal faster. If I bruised myself before it usually took months to heal. Six months was not at all unusual. Longer, even. I come home from a day at work and may actually clean house for a while before I make dinner. Both cooking and cleaning! In one day! After working!!! Whooh-hoooh!!! The house gleams. In multiple rooms. That hasn't happened in over a decade! My stomach doesn't seem to make as much acid, so burping, belching, GERD are relatively rare events. I cut my GERD meds back from twice a day to twice a week. Maybe in another year none? There are more health problems I had that are getting better, but you get the idea. The gluten-free idea all started trying to find a solution for my skin problems of about a decade. I wasn't expecting most of these benefits. They are a surprise, a gift. Most important of all, though, is that my mind is sharp and clear. Before, I'd been forgetting things. I was struggling to get by at work. It was scaring me so much I brought it up with my doctor. But the memory problems didn't match anything obviously diagnosable. So we were watching it, establishing a baseline. All those things you do when you are trying to figure out what's wrong. And it turned out to be the gluten. I can think again. I remember so much more. I can make a plan, keep it in mind, and follow it through. My mind is clear. What a gift! Oh, the other thing going gluten-free means to me? Quinoa. Lots and lots of quinoa. 🙂 Mmmm, love it!
