Q: A few years ago you covered a question about vinegar mothers. Well I've got a new spin on the question. My balsamic vinegar has grown a mother. Is there any way I can use it to make vinegar from wine? I know that balsamic is traditionally made from un-fermented pressed grapes carefully aged in barrels. That sounds too complicated to do at home, but I'd love to find some use for this mother. Sent by Liz Editor: Liz, it's certainly worth a try! Take a look at this How To post on making vinegar: • How To Make Your Own Vinegar Has anyone made vinegar using a mother from balsamic vinegar?   Related: How Can I Make Red Wine Vinegar at Home?
