Make your own strawberry vinegar at home for use on fruits, salads, or in vinaigrette. The vinegar keeps in a dark, cool place indefinitely.

Prep Time: 48 hours

Total Time: 48 hours

Ingredients:

  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 2 cups white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar

Preparation:

In a bowl stir together the strawberries, the vinegar, and the sugar and let the mixture stand, covered, at room temperature for 2 days. Discard the strawberries with a slotted spoon and strain the vinegar through a fine sieve lined with a triple thickness of rinsed and squeezed cheesecloth into a bowl. Transfer the vinegar to a bottle with a tight-fitting lid and use it in salad dressings and marinades. The vinegar keeps in a dark, cool place indefinitely.

Yield: 2 cups
