Chive Flower Vinegar

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!

I just don’t see the sense in handing my cash over to someone else when I don’t have to. I coupon, I grow and can food, I reuse and repurpose items, I scour thrift stores and during the warmer months, my Saturday mornings consist of yard sales and our local farmer’s market with my husband. I have organized local meetings which include coupon swaps, barter clubs and swap meets. Here is where I begin to share this life with the rest of the world. This is Fine Frugality. Because being frugal is not only fine. It is FINE.
