    A month or so back I saw Martin Yan comparing black rice vinegar with average balsamic. And I've seen Cook's Illustrated make a slightly lesser claim in the same vein.

    I don't think they taste at all alike when tasted straight up, nor that they substitute for each other.

    However, I have found that they combine well to make a vinaigrette my wife loves on mescluln with pomegranate seeds. I like it too.

    Outside of Chinese cooking what else do you do with black rice vinegar?
