Chives in Bloom | Make Some Flavored Vinegar

My chives are in full bloom as you can see from a photo I took earlier this week. I think I should make some flavored herb vinegar.

Chive Blossom Vinegar

2 cups white vinegar
2 cups freshly packed chive blossoms

Bring vinegar just to boil, but do not boil. Pour over chive blossoms. Let stand in a crock or large glass bowl or bottle in cool, dark place for one week.

Strain vinegar, discard blossoms.

Transfer to bottles and add sprig of fresh chive blossom to each bottle.

Great gifts from the garden.

My chives are in bloom, too!( I actually cut them to put in small vases in the house, or else just snip themn with kitchen shears to add to my cream cheese)

Can that chive vinegar be used to make a salad dressing?

I really enjoy your blog. I had forgotten about making chive blossom vinegar but, now that I have been reminded, I will make some soon. I like it sprinkled on cucumbers or cooked potatoes. Thank you.
