With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Chive Blossom Vinegar

Chive Blossom Vinegar

My blogging friend, Lynn @ Happier Than a Pig in Mud recently posted a photo tutorial for making Chive Blossom Vinegar. Since my herb garden was abloom with pretty purple blossoms, I was excited to make a batch to use when I make salad dressing.  The process is pretty simple.

Gather the blooms and wash gently.
Dry (Lynn uses a salad spinner for this)
Fill a clean jar with blossoms
Cover blossoms with distilled vinegar.
Cover jar and allow to steep 1-2 weeks in a cool, dark place. Lynn said her Chive Blossom Vinegar was just right at 8 days, so that is how long I steeped mine.
Strain the vinegar and store in a sterilized jar.


Thank you, Lynn, for sharing!

'Something' ate all my chives so I will have to wait until next year! Hope I get more to plant! But you Chive Blossom Vinegar is lovely and I'm sure it tastes great, too!
The best flavored vinegar I have ever had was wild huckleberry vinegar ~ I could drink that stuff straight! :~} The possibilities must be endless!
Love the photo with the bottle and daisies!
Good night!

This was on my To Do list this year after seeing it last year on blogs, but I think I missed the chive blossoms again! It is absolutely stunning! I bet it tastes fabulous too.

I didn't get around to making any this year but loved trying it last year. It makes great salad dressings and is just so pretty!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

How fun that you made some! Your pics are beautiful and I hope you enjoy it:@)

Wendy said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog today... it was such an encouragement to have you return.

You have a beautiful blog. Fresh and crisp... and your photography is fab. I have always wanted a good camera and to learn to take photos. I am still practising on my Samsung (not expensive) camera. Now and again, I capture a lovely photo (at least I think it's lovely - it may not be in the eye of a trained photographer)!

Have a great weekend.
