Lemon-Tarragon Vinegar

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Rita1652

Nice to gift wrap and put into a fruit basket. This takes 1-4 weeks to infuse flavors. Can be doubled.

This vinegar becomes almost syrupy. A very nice herbal flavour with citrus and the sweetness make for a rather unusual and delicious vinegar. I made a vinaigrette for a leafy green salad - wonderful! I can imagine marinating chicken and/or pork in this with great results.
