Catholic Recipe: Herb Vinegar

    INGREDIENTS

  • fresh herb (tarragon, garlic, oregano, sage, basil, thyme or a combination of herbs)
  • 2 quarts of vinegar
  • Details

  • Yield: 2 quarts
  • Prep Time: 10 days
  • Difficulty: • •
  • Cost: $$$$
  • For Ages: 6+
  • Origin:

Herb vinegars are especially easy to use because they give the essence without the actual herb being present. You never have to worry about leaving a clove of garlic in a salad bowl if you use herb vinegars. They are very simple to make, too. These vinegars will give you herb-flavored salads in the dead of winter, and in the summer, too, when you are in a hurry to prepare a picnic.

DIRECTIONS

Cover several handfuls of the fresh herb with two quarts of vinegar. Let it stand for 10 days. Strain. If the resulting vinegar seems weak, repeat the operation. Usually once is enough. Use three cloves of garlic to two quarts of vinegar.
