Call me a sucker for a pretty pink. Or a shameless salad lover, for whom a flavored vinegar or oil can bring delight. Either way, when I saw chive blossom vinegar all over the internet, I had to have it.
DIY projects can be fun and productive but tend to require some actual work. Happily this chive blossom vinegar is an exception. It requires only about 5 minutes of effort exclusive of the walk to the garden. And you could hardly call a garden stroll work!
The only thing I’d do differently is to make a little more since once you strain the chives blossoms out, there is always less than you’d think.
- 1 cup chive blossoms
- 1 cup white distilled vinegar
Rinse chive blossoms and shake dry (ish). Place in glass container such as a canning jar.
Top with white distilled vinegar, then weight down so chive blossoms stay below the vinegar surface.
Wait 1-2 weeks until pink and fragrant, then strain and use where you’d use flavored vinegar.
