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.
