I'm taking a break from the kitchen and I just wanted to share this with you before I forget! I was preparing salad dressing for Thanksgiving and reached for my Balsamic Vinegar. As I poured out my first tablespoon I thought "I don't remember there being herbs in this vinegar..." To my shagrin, upon closer inspection I saw that the entire bottle was filled with fruit flies! The top of the bottle had been left off and it had been sitting on my open shelf.
Yuck! I immediately convinced hubby to go to the store for a new bottle.........so this got me thinking, I'll remember this next summer when fruit flies are driving me crazy. I'm going to put some balsamic vinegar into a long necked bottle and leave it on the counter to catch those annoying gnats! I don't think it would work with straight vinegar since it doesn't have the sweetness of the balsamic...but I'll try both.
Thus, a yucky but useful discovery!
