After tasting the soup the next day, I don't think I'll add as much apple cider vinegar next time (I should really get some sherry vinegar - presuming you can get it at most supermarkets).  It turned quite acidic after resting - never mind, will be cooking it again!!

Yes, I would imagine cider vinegar being a bit too sharp for it and would suggest adding a little sugar to it if you are using that type of vinegar.  Sherry vinegar is comparatively sweet and may be more to your taste.  I imagine you would be able to get it quite easily in supermarkets

How do you think balsamic vinegar would work?

Might change the colour unless white balsalmic. Japanese sushi  vinegar?  Verjuice would work.

Just a thought.

When I made it, I am pretty sure the vinegar I used was a balsamic sherry vinegar, so I imagine normal balsamic would work very well as it has that slight sweetness you need.  I think other vinegars would probably be too sharp, but it is always fun to experiment  ;D

I had both white and 'normal' dark balsamic on hand so made this with the dark and the colour was fine - so was the taste!

Didn't think of balsamic....... yes, I think it was missing the sweet factor - my tomatoes weren't too crash hot either  :D

Cuilidh - glad you enjoyed it with the balsamic.

Tam - yes, you do really need ripe tomatoes for the best flavour.  I think when I made it, I was probably using up my last box of the year of local tomatoes, so they were nice and ripe.
