The chives in the garden are flowering and are oh-so lovely! I decided that I would use some of them to make Chive Flower Vinegar. Another very, very simple “recipe” that people love to receive as gifts. Here’s what you do:
Take a nice amount of chive flowers and wash them thoroughly. Dry well. Place flowers into a mason jar, filling the jar approximately 2/3 of the way with flowers.
Fill the jar to the top with regular white vinegar. Put the lid on and let sit in a dark, cool place for about two weeks. The vinegar will turn a shade of pink and will take on the subtle onion-y taste of the chives. Drain the vinegar before using just in case a little bug or piece of dirt was still in your flowers.
Chive Vinegar is great to use in all sorts of recipes, but especially fresh homemade salad dressing. Yum. Enjoy!
