If you have chives, give this a try. It's so easy and produces a beautiful delicious vinegar to use in salad dressings and marinades. I think I may try this to pickle some green beans this summer.
Chive Blossom Vinegar
- Pick your blossoms, snipping enough to fill your jar about 2/3 full
- Give the blossoms a good soak to remove any dessert or critters that might have hopped on to the beautiful flowers.
- Spin them in your salad spinner or dry on paper towels
- Pack them in a jar and fill your jar with distilled vinegar.
- Leave them in a cool, dark place for 1 - 2 weeks. Lynn at Happier Than A Pig in Mud recommends 8 days.
- Strain and store in the fridge!
- Isn't the color just beautiful?
