There’s a BRAND NEW product – Fresh Fruit Vinegar – that is looking for Kickstarter backers.
Fruit vinegar dates back to the 18th century when berries were preserved in vinegar. Today, Christopher Spivak is putting a modern twist on the classic with Mangé’s line of exquisite fresh fruit vinegars.

“If you’ve ever tried cooking with a fresh fruit vinegar, chances are you weren’t able to stop,” says Christopher Spivak, owner and founder of Mangé, a Massachusetts-based company that specializes in gastronomic cuisine.
