I lovemaking my own vinegar, the variations are endless. And it's simple, all you have to do is pour hot vinegar over the herbs, and let it stand for 2 weeks. Place a sprig of the fresh herb in the bttle, to make it look pretty, especially if giving as gifts. The recipe below is my favorite one.
- 1⁄2 cup fresh basil leaf
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 2 cups vinegar (5% acidity)
- fresh basil sprig
- garlic clove, whole
