Q:

What are some substitutes for rice wine vinegar?

A:

Rice wine vinegar can be substituted with white wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar with a pinch of sugar, or a mixture of three parts white vinegar and one part water. A recipe with rice wine vinegar typically intends for white rice vinegar to be used, not red or black rice.

The Chinese use red rice vinegar in seafood or sweet-and-sour dishes. Black rice vinegar typically is used in Chinese stir-fries and dipping sauces. Sometimes, rice wine vinegar is referred to as simply rice vinegar. Rice vinegar is sweeter and milder than other vinegars.

Rice wine vinegar should not be substituted with seasoned rice vinegar.
