What's Cookin?: Chive Blossom Vinegar

My chive flowers started blooming a few weeks ago.  This year I decided to pick them and use them to make vinegar.  In years past, I've left the buds to bloom.  The bees like them and so do I.  This year I was a little selfish.  I harvested some.























I placed some flowers in a jar with some stems and filled it with white vinegar.  I covered the jar and let them steep for a few weeks.  Store the jar in a dark pantry.

After a few weeks your vinegar will turn a lovely shade of lavender.  Use the vinegar in any recipe you would normally use regular vinegar.  It lends a nice onion taste.  I used it in salad dressings.  Yummy!
