Ready In:
6hrs 2mins
1 quart




  • In a one-quart mason jar place the blackberries in the bottom. You may crush lightly with a wooden spoon for the most flavor if you like. Fill the jar with the vinegar and put the lid on. Place the jar outside in the sun to steep all day like you would for Sun Tea. At the end of the day strain vinegar into another jar. Will keep for months.

  1. This recipe was very interesting I had to give it a try. I was pleased with the end results. I let it sit for one day out in the sun then let it sit for a few more days. I didnt crush the berries I wanted the vingear to be clear, not cloudy looking. Ive tasted it now and it really mellow the harsh edge from the vinegar. Nice color as well. I have strained it and put in to smaller jars for a gift for my sister, and some for myself. Ive stored in the fridge. Can't wait to try it in a salad. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Made for the Preserving Summer Memories in the cooking photo forum.
  2. This was quick and easy to make I just put it out side to steep one morning before I went to work and when I got home that evening I brought it in and it was finished. Tastes just like the flavoured vinegars you can get at specialty stores. I can't wait until I get a chance to try it as a vinagrette.


I'm a 48 year old newlywed, just married June 7, 2008. We have 15 and 17 year old boys who are very grateful for my cooking abilities! We live in a small lake community about an hour outside of Dallas, and wouldn't trade Country Life for anything. I'm an accountant for a large commercial real estate firm in downtown Dallas, but on the weekends we travel all over the state and participate in the CASI (Chili Appreciation Society International) chili cookoffs and raise money for charity. It's a great way for us to do something together, and we've met tons of fun people. <img src="">
