Make Your Own Herbal Vinegar


This is the simplest and most homemaker friendly way to make fine herbal vinegars you can use in salads and dressing recipes. You will enjoy them.
Find some lovely bottles to store them in and decorate your kitchen with them. They make beautiful gifts too.

Clean the bottles with soap and hot water then rinse in hot water thoroughly. Let dry.

Now pick the herbs you wish to use for your vinegar. Tarragon, basil, Dill, whatever you wish and pack about a cup of the checked, washed and rinsed herbs into the bottles. Poke them down with a long straw if you need.
Heat your vinegar just til it will boil ....
Pour the vinegar of your choice, apple cidar or white over the herbs and close the bottle.
Now let them sit in a cool dark place for 3 weeks.

If you are in for a more organic recipe .. just pour the vinegar on without boiling and set the bottles out in the warm sunshine for a few weeks to a month.

For the adventurous, use chilies or peppers instead of herbs. Hold onto your hat when trying these.
Bon Appetite.
