Pucker up, sweetie: Chefs have long known that adding a splash of something acidic to desserts can further develop the flavors and intensify the sweetness.

While that acid has typically come from citrus fruits, two chefs have found vinegar pairs just as well with sweets. They have each recently written cookbooks on cooking with vinegar that include a chapter on desserts.

I use vinegar for cleaning, air freshening, etc., and medicinally. The one thing I don't use it for is cooking. I'll have to give it a try.
