Transcript of "Flavored vinegar recipes leaf spices"

  1. 1. Flavored Vinegars – Basic Recipes Herb-infused vinegar – cold vinegar method 1 to 1 ¼ cup vinegar 1 to 3 sprigs of fresh herbs (3-inch sprigs) or 2 to 4 sprigs dried herbs or ½ cup chopped fresh herbs Wash jar in dishwasher or sterilize in boiling water for 10 minutes. Invert jar on paper towel and let completely dry. Wash fresh herbs and pat dry. Measure vinegar and pour into sterilized jar. Lightly crush or cut herb sprigs and add to jar. Be sure that herbs are completely covered by the vinegar – if needed, add more vinegar. If your jar has a metal lid, place a double layer of plastic wrap over the jar opening. Screw on the lid/cap the jar. Place in an area out of direct sun and let the flavors develop at room temperature. Check daily until flavors are sufficiently strong (often 1-3 days for fresh herbs – up to a week or two for dried herbs). You can shake the jar to distribute the flavors better. Once the flavors suit your taste remove the herbs. Strain the vinegar through a jelly/juicing bag or a strainer lined with a coffee filter. Re-bottle and store in a cool dark place at room temperature (about 1-2 month) or in the refrigerator (2-4 months).
