  • Many vinegars are used in cooking. I use red wine vinegar in my Sweet & Sour Meatballs, but I have other recipes that call for distilled white vinegar. It really depends on the recipe you're preparing.

  • Exactly as the other poster said. Some recipes call fro red wine vinegar, some for cider vinegar, some for white distilled. It really depends on the recipe. Usually you cannot substitute one for the other. If a recipe says just "vinegar" most likely it is referring to white distilled.
