Web Chef Review: Napa Valley Vinegar Co. Blood Orange Vinegar - cookingwithkimberly.comIn this recipe, I’m using Napa Valley Vinegar Co. Blood Orange Vinegar to get the blood orange flavor, as well as some coloring to this candy recipe.

This vinegar has blood orange puree in it, making it sweet, tangy & flavorful. You can find this vinegar from Wine Country Kitchens.

  • Be sure to store the candy apples in a dry location.
