Edible Flower Infused Vinegar
The View From the Great Island
You can make your own edible flower infused vinegar! These delicate floral vinegar infusions can be used to make subtly flavored dressings for all kinds of salads.
- any light colored vinegar: white, cider, rice wine, or white wine, for instance?
- edible blossoms such as roses, nasturtiums lavender, impatiens, geranium, etc.
- Make sure your flowers are clean and dry. Put them in a clean jar or bottle, and fill with vinegar, making sure all the flowers are immersed. Cap or cork the bottle tightly and store in a cool dark place, giving it a gentle shake every day.
- Let the vinegar infuse for about 2-3 weeks, then remove the flowers, strain through a coffee filter, and re-bottle.
- While plain white vinegar makes the prettiest presentation because it's crystal clear, if you are planning to use your vinegar for salads, you might want to go with a white wine vinegar.
