Chive Blossom Vinegar

When I moved up north the yard I ended up with was in dire need of much love and tlc. It truly required a complete redo from the trees and shrubs right down to the lawn. Everything had to go. The only original section of the yard is a tiny 1×3 foot section in the back which is now my herb and bulb starting garden. And that is strictly because of the chives that grow there.

I love to use them in everything and it is always the first taste of spring to come from my yard.

Somewhere last summer I seen a picture of a bottle of deep magenta colored vinegar made from chive blossoms. Seriously, a genius idea. And I immediately headed out back to pluck a handful of pungent purple flowers.

I gave them a quick rinse then allowed them to air dry.

I filled a jar full of blossoms and covered them with regular white pickling vinegar. Store someplace dark for 2 weeks.

Strain and bottle.

It is fantastic! The blossoms give the vinegar an almost sweet onion aroma and the flavor is rich, tangy pure onion goodness.
