Making your own flavored vinegar is fun, easy and economical.
The flavor of homemade vinegar is much more intense than the store-bought kind.
Another added bonus, you know exactly what is in your vinegar.
If using flavored vinegar for culinary purposes,
use a good quality white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar.
- 2 cups blackberries, washed
- 2 cups white wine vinegar

- With the back of a spoon or ladle, press down carefully to mash the berries and release their juices. Pour the mixture through a sieve into a large saucepan. Add the sugar to the liquid. Stir and heat until boiling.
