So, what is malzessig?

Malzessig, also known as malt vinegar, is a type of vinegar that is made from malted barley. The barley is soaked in water and allowed to germinate, which activates enzymes that break down the starches in the barley into sugars. The malted barley is then dried and roasted, which gives it a dark color and a distinctive nutty flavor. The roasted barley is then steeped in vinegar, which allows the sugars to ferment into acetic acid, creating the tangy and slightly sweet taste that is characteristic of malt vinegar. Malzessig is commonly used as a condiment for fish and chips, and can also be used in salad dressings, marinades, and sauces.
