When it comes to vinegar, there are at least 11 types you should know (not limited to apple cider vinegar, red wine vinegar, champagne vinegar and balsamic vinegar, which all take bland recipes up a notch). But now we're taking that number up to 12, because Brightland launched a new persimmon vinegar on February 8, and it's giving juicy and tart in all the best ways. Called Folklore, it's a naturally fermented vinegar made from organic California persimmons that's bursting with the tart, juicy flavor of organic Fuyu and Hachiya persimmons.

Never heard of the fruit before? All you need to know is persimmons have a sweet honey flavor and a plum-like texture, which make delicious jams, smoothies and now vinegar, thanks to Brightland's two-step fermentation process which converts the sugar to alcohol and then converts alcohol to acetic acid and is bottled to turn basic salads, cocktails and pastas into bright and refreshing goodness.

Not to mention persimmons are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which can help lower cholesterol and boost heart, liver, skin and digestive health, according to WebMD. Also, Folklore was created in partnership with the non-profit White Buffalo Land Trust, which is dedicated to rehabilitating our ecosystem. The 200-milliliter glass bottle is recyclable, and the ingredients are grown on family farms in California.

So it's healthy, bursting with a juicy and tart flavor and consciously made? Don't mind if we do.
