Chive Blossom Vinegar

Post  muffinator on 5/29/2011, 8:58 am

I wanted to share this recipe from a favorite food blog of mine. I've got a ton of chive blossoms, so I bet others do too. I can never keep up with them, so thought this would be a good way to use more!

I'm going to be making this today. I just need to pick up some more vinegar. Smile

Awesome idea.

I like the fresh blossoms in pasta or potato salad.

Deborah....good to meet you!

Chive Blossom Vinegar

Post  sherryeo on 5/29/2011, 11:49 am

Thanks for sharing, muffinator! I don't currently have any chive planted, but definitely want to try it in future gardens. I tried planting garlic chives from seeds earlier this year, but they just never sprouted - might be a good thing since I've learned since that garlic chives can be invasive. I'll try regular chives next time. I've saved the recipe in my "To Try" folder.


again!

That looks lovely. I am going to try that too. My chives are just starting to flower so that will be a great way to keep them from seeding themselves all over the herb bed. And my girls will love the gifts too.

I made two batches of this on Friday. If you save your bottles from vinegars, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, etc; they are perfect for small batch vinegars. You even have the shaker part and are reusing what would otherwise be thrown away or at best recycled. I will often put a fresh couple of blossoms or sprig of herbs in for aesthetics.

I just saved a soy sauce bottle 2 days ago. My chives are almost in full bloom, so now I know what is going in that bottle!
