The holiday season is certainly a time of indulgence which is why I love gifting a bright vinegar to balance out the sugar and butter. Raspberry Vinegar is delicious in salad dressings, BBQ sauces, and marinades. Plus, the deep pink hue is incredibly festive.

Ingredients

1 pint raspberries

2 cups white wine vinegar

Directions

  1. Bring the vinegar to a gentle boil over medium-high heat. 
  2. Add in the berries and cook for 5 minutes. 
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and let cook slightly. 
  4. Pour the raspberry-vinegar mixture into a jar fitted with a lid and leave in the pantry for 3-4 days. 
  5. After a few days, strain the vinegar through a coffee filter to remove the fruit and seeds. Pour the raspberry vinegar into two tall jars for gifting.
