How to Make It

Step 1

Basic Directions: To make herbal vinegars, fill a clean, sterilized glass bottle or jar with fresh herbs. Use 2/3 white vinegar to 1/3 white or red wine to make vinegar more mellow. Pour vinegar/wine mixture over herbs; bruise herbs with a wooden spoon.

Step 2

Cover container and store in a cool, dark place at room temperature. Stir mixture once every 4 or 5 days with a wooden spoon. The vinegar will be ready in 3 to 6 weeks, depending upon how strong you want it to be.

Step 3

Filter/strain herbs from vinegar. (A coffee filter and funnel work well.)

Step 4

Place a few clean, fresh herb sprigs in a clean, attractive bottle. Pour vinegar over sprigs.
