DIRECTIONS

  • In a nonreactive saucepan, combine the honey, 1 cup of the raisins, half of the chopped figs and the sweet wine.
  • Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer, stirring from time to time, until reduced to 1 cup.
  • Pass the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl, pressing on solids, and discard raisins and figs.
  • Tie the remaining raisins and figs in a piece of cheesecloth.
  • Combine the flavoured wine with the red and white vinegars in a clean 1 ½-quart jar.
  • Add both cheesecloth packages (the dried fruit in one, the wood chips in the other).
  • Cover and let stand for 3-4 weeks, shaking from time to time.
  • Discard both cheesecloth packages, pass the vinegar through a dampened coffee filter into a 1-quart bottle and cover tightly.
  • Honeyed Wine Vinegar will keep for 1 year stored in a cool, dark place.
