Tropical Traditions Organic Vinegar Giveaway



Here I am, talking about Tropical Traditions again! Why? Not because I get to sample some of their products, because truly they do not require that of me one bit. I love telling you about them because they are an awesome company with awesome products.
Today I want to point you in the direction of their Coconut Water Vinegar, and like all the other products from Tropical Traditions, it is USDA Certified Organic!
This unique vinegar is raw and unpasteurized made with the water from inside a coconut which has been allowed to ferment. All coconuts are organically grown in the Philippines at certified Fair Trade farms.
Coconut vinegar is high in vitamins and minerals especially potassium which is of importance to me. The coconut water contains electrolytes which are naturally rehydrating and completely sterile inside the coconut. In World War II, these same electrolytes were used in emergency IV fluids right on the battle field. Contrary to what you would think, when the coconut is left open to the air and allowed to ferment to a vinegar the nutrients are enhanced.
Only the best certified organic Muscabado whole sugar grown on Fair Trade farms are used for the fermentation process. This particular sugar cane is deep brown in color which give the vinegar its lovely golden brown hue.

Check out these recipes for some of the many things you can make with Coconut Water Vinegar. The salad dressing is fantastic, and since we are having such a warm spring, we will be grilling on Easter Sunday. I plan on making the coconut barbecue sauce for my chicken. Can't wait to taste it!

Now for the part you've all been waiting for! Tropical Traditions is generously offering a 32 oz bottle of Coconut Water Vinegar for a giveaway!!
Here's all you have to do:

Coconut oil has a long shelf life and a melting point of 76 degrees, making it great for baking.

The things I learn... like that there even is a Coconut Water Vinegar! I'd try the Coconut/Olive Oil Italian Dressing first. I'm always looking for new ways to dress a salad!

contestrobyn said...

I learned that Since Coconut Cream Concentrate (CCC) contains about 70% fat which is pure coconut oil, there are a lot of the same benefits.

In the Philippines and other tropical places, raw coconut water is often left in the open air to ferment, where it eventually turns into a vinegar. Thanks.
