Herbal vinegars make good marinades. Also try this with oil as a different flavored salad dressing. This also makes a pretty gift.
- 1 quart red wine vinegar
- 3 sprigs fresh cilantro
- 2 sprigs fresh oregano
- 3 -5 cumin seeds
- 1 hot chili pepper (optional)
- 1 whole red pepper (optional)
- Pour vinegar over bruised herbs. Cover tightly and steep 2-3 weeks.
- Strain into decorative bottle. Add a whole red pepper for decoration.
Sorry Nyteglori, this didn't make it two to three weeks as I had planned. I gave up and used this the other day, and it was so good, this is now my second (2) batch. I really, really, love hot peppers ~ and this was a wonderful easy recipe to put together, let sit a bit, and use up. The taste was grand, and the mixture of cumin fresh herbs and hot peppers really made this a truly special condiment to any table. I use this for sliced cucumbers (that I put in fridge and chill) throw on raw veggies, or use in a salad dressing. This is not a hot vinegar, but rather a taste that amplifies the freshness of the herbs. I added a about 10 - 15 pieces of rock salt (or ice cream salt) to the bottle and it brings out the taste even further, like that was possible, since it's already beyond special! Thanks, Nyteglori makes a perfect gift too!
