Herbal Vinegars

Welcome to Gifts from the Kitchen #SundaySupper Sunday! This week’s Sunday Supper co-hosts are the wonderful and talented Susan from The Wimpy Vegetarian and Amber from Mamas’ Blissful Bites Blog URL: Mamas’ Blissful Bites . Thanks ladies!
I’m a big proponent of giving homemade gifts around the holidays. A personal touch can mean so much in world of gift cards and “the season’s hottest gifts” that we see advertised on TV.
Homemade herb flavored vinegar makes a great base for salad dressings and marinades.You can add your favorite salad dressing recipe on a card as a bonus!


  • 2 cups white wine vinegar, red wine vinegar (or combo of both)
  • 1-cup mixed fresh herbs (basil, oregano, tarragon, thyme, marjoram, chives, etc) use leaves, stems and flowers
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • mixed peppercorns
  • whole dried cayenne peppers (optional)
  • 2 NEW quart-size Mason jars
  • plastic wrap
  • wooden spoon, coffee filter, funnel

Combine vinegar, herbs and spices. Stir. Cover the jar mouth with plastic wrap, lid and store at room temperature. Shake or stir daily for 2 weeks. Line a funnel with a coffee filter and strain vinegar into a clean, sterile jar.
You can add fresh sprigs or herbs for decoration.
Vinegar keeps about 3 months.

    What a fabulous idea for a gift! I have tons on fresh herbs in my garden that I really need to do something with – and this is perfect!! I even have a bunch of jars left over from a class I taught last spring on making strawberry vinegar. Thanks for the perfect gift idea!!!

  26. Yum, this is so versatile, both in how you make the vinegars, and how you use them!

  27. This vinegar looks delicious, add a kick to any salad :)

    What a simple but clever idea. It's like falvored oil but with vinegar instead. Thanks for the idea as always.

    Every summer I think about making herbed vinegars but when I finally truly get the resolve to do it, my herbs have bitten the dust with the first freeze. I still have rosemary though. I would love to get these for gifts.
