    - Carla -'s Note:

    Herbal vinegars are easy to prepare, beautiful to look at and can be used in any recipe that calls for vinegar. Plus they make great gifts from your garden. The prodecure for making any herbal vinegar is the same, no matter what herb or combination of herbs you are using. All you need are some herbs, top quality vinegars, glass jars and a glass or stainless steel saucepan. For the best retention of flavors, store flavored vinegars in the refrigerator or a cool dark place. If properly prepared, flavored vinegars should retain good quality for two to three months in cool room storage and for six to eight months in refrigerated storage. -=Attention=- Should you decided to display pretty bottles of herb and fruit vinegars on a kitchen window sill. If left out for more than a few weeks, these bottles are then considered as decoration and not used in food preparation.

      A very nice vinegar with a light, refreshing taste. I used it in a salad dressing, and will be using it in a fish marinade. I subbed Lemon Balm for the Verbena and spearmint for the mint.

      A great recipe for herbal vinegar and one that uses one of my favourite herbs, Lemon Verbena. I made this just as posted and then strained it after 2 weeks; I placed fresh sprigs of lemon verbena and mint in the bottle for identifcation purposes. I may use a blend of vinegars next time for a more "layered" flavour, such as cider vinegar, a little red wine vinegar (for Rose vinegar!) or sherry vinegar. An easy recipe which gave a lovely tasting vinegar, as well as being very pretty! Made for the Magic of Herbs event in the Photo's Forum - thanks Carla! FT:-)
