Herb Vinegars

 I wish I could send all these lovely aromas through the internet.

It has been a long time since I have made herb vinegars.

These are experiments.  If you want a tried-and-true recipe, there are many on the internet.

I chose to make my own recipes using my nose.

First I clipped various herbs from the bunny yard/herb garden.

I placed these in labeled, separate bags.

They were then washed and patted dry.

I clipped pieces and placed them in a dish to check out the aromas of the combos.

I then placed these combinations in heat-treated bottles.  I used a chop stick to push pieces into the bottom of the bottles.

I heated (not boiled) the chosen vinegar.

The recipe for each bottle was written on a sticker and put on the bottom of the bottle.

Since these were experiments, I did not fill the whole bottles.

I used white wine vinegar, rice wine vinegar and apple cider vinegar.

Strain the apple cider vinegar because it has debris in it.

This would make your vinegar ugly.

I will allow these bottles to steep for a few weeks and then taste test.

Do not put these in a sunny location. They will fade and heat up.

I will let you know if I have a winning combination.
