DIY Infused Vinegars

From the French “vin egre,” or “sour wine,” vinegar is typically the product of the fermentation of alcohol—and it’s much deeper than you may think. Its countless uses include flavor-enhancer, dressing, tenderizer, preservative and healing tonic. It comes in a rainbow of colorful varieties, including white, wine, apple cider and balsamic. No matter which variety you need, make sure you choose a high-quality vinegar that’s unpasteurized and naturally fermented for full nutritional benefits and fantastic flavor.

The variety doesn’t end with the label. Make your own infused vinegars by following the recipes below, beginning with a light base, like Champagne or white wine vinegar, then adding your favorite combination of herbs, spices, and flavors. Home-infused vinegars make lovely gifts that keep on giving.
