Thyme in a Bottle

Thyme in a Bottle

Using simple ingredients like basil and sage, you can create tasty
And beautiful gourmet bottled vinegar to give as gifts or keep for

Thyme in a Bottle


Red or white wine vinegar
Selection of herbs
Plastic funnel
Decorative bottles

Sterilize an empty bottle by boiling it. Select the wine vinegar of
Your choice. Most people prefer white wine vinegar but some use red
For more color. Avoid apple vinegar, as that will change the flavor
Of your herbs. Pour the vinegar into the bottle using a plastic
Funnel (a metal funnel may contain bacteria that would ruin your
Vinegar). Next, choose the herbs you'd like to use. A variety is
Fine. Add the herbs to the bottle until you achieve a look you like.

Cap the bottle securely and set it in the sun for 2-3 weeks so the
Vinegar absorbs the flavor of the herbs. If you prefer, you can cook
It by gently heating on the stove instead. Add your personal tag and
It's' ready to give away or use in your own kitchen.
