Herb Vinegar

Western.Chefs's picture
  Fresh herbs 2 Cup (32 tbs), washed gently in cool water and patted dry on paper toweling (Tender Leaves / Sprigs, Tarragon, Chervil, Dill, Basil Or Thyme)
  Cider vinegar/White wine vinegar 1 Pint (Boiling)

Place herbs in a wide-mouthed heatproof jar and crush lightly with the handle of a wooden spoon.
Pour in vinegar and cool to room temperature.
Screw on lid and let stand in a cool spot (not refrigerator) 10 days to 2 weeks; once every day, turn jar upside down, then right side up again.
Taste vinegar after 10 days and, if strong enough, strain through several thicknesses of cheesecloth into a fresh pint jar.
If too weak, let stand the full 2 weeks.
If still too weak, strain off vinegar and bring to a boil; fill a fresh jar with freshly picked herbs, cover with boiling vinegar, and let stand a week to 10 days, turning once a day.
Strain vinegar and use for making salad dressings and sauces.
