Chive flower Vinegar


I think I first saw this on Pinterest and it was timely as my Chives were flowering :) I googled it and found these instructions and images delightful.


I did not have near the volume of flowers that were used in the example but my vinegar is still turning a lovely shade and smells divine!


I added a couple of flowers later in the process, ones that opened after my initial harvest, they have just made it a shade darker. I'll let it steep a little longer due to the additions and am thinking this would make a lovey Christmas gift in a pretty bottle. :)

  2. chives in bloom here too, that looks so beautiful, would need to be careful not to mistake it for rose water.

  3. I am a huge chive flower fan and love them broken up and scattered over my salad mix but I simply MUST make some of this. How divine would this be as a simple dressing! Thanks for posting the idea.
