Full Answer

If the vinegar overload is in a liquid recipe, the easiest way to downplay it is to dilute the vinegar by adding a small amount of water, broth or other suitable liquid to cut the liquid by up to half and reduce the vinegar flavor. For other dishes, increasing the sweetness or saltiness of the dish can help to mask an overabundance of vinegar.
