Herbed Vinegars

Rated as 4.62 out of 5 Stars

"This is a simple way to make herbed vinegars. Herbed vinegars make great gifts and will last for over 6 months. (Use approximately 3 sprigs of herbs for each 16 ounce bottle.) Try using thyme, oregano, rosemary, chives, tarragon or fennel with different vinegars to make all kinds of variations. Hint: If you use purple basil, the vinegar will taste great, and be a lovely shade of purple!"

  1. Choose a 16-ounce bottle with a well-fitting lid or cork. Boil it to sterilize, then remove from 'water bath', empty of any water inside, and allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar with 1/3 cup of water and heat until the mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat.
  3. Slip about 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary into the cooled bottle.
  4. Using a funnel and care (!), pour the hot (NOT boiling) vinegar into the bottle over the rosemary. Cover tightly with lid and store at room temperature.

Great! Made a romaine salad with onion, blue cheese and sunflower seeds and mixed it with garlic olive oil and this rosemary vinegar! Big hit an so easy.

Fabulous!!Didn't change a thing!

So simple and fantastic! I don't go through it very quickly, so I've only made it with rosemary so far. Great as a salad dressing (especially for a Greek-style salad with feta and black olives o...

I made this with purple basil. Beautiful color. All my herbs took off in my raised garden beds so I can't wait to do this with all of them to give as gifts.
