From my kitchen: Homemade raspberry vinegar


Making the perfect salad vinaigrette may as well be one of the most useful things I've ever learned while living in France. The combination of Dijon mustard, olive oil and vinegar always adds a lot of flavor and character to any salad I make. I've been pretty much sticking to the same recipe for years (regularly switching classic red wine and balsamic vinegar). But lately I've become a little bit more adventurous and I wanted to experiment a little bit with different flavors. First on my list was definitely raspberry winegar (the idea!), but instead of buying the stuff in store, I've decided to try my hand on making my own. It's very easy, even if it takes some time to macerate, and the results are simply amazing. I can't wait to experiment with more original flavors!

Raspberry vinegar

You'll need:

* 250ml white wine vinegar
* 200g raspberries
* 1 tbsp sugar

1. In a saucepan, bring the vinegar to a boil (it should only be slightly simmering), then put it away from heat.
2. Put the raspberries in a Fido jar, add the vinegar and squash the raspberries to get a thick mixture.
3. Close the jar, put it in the fridge and let macerate two weeks.
4. After two weeks, strain the mixture with the help of paper towel, pour the vinegar in a bottle and keep in the fridge.

  3. I love that last image! Such a good idea! Raspberries have been in my kitchen a lot too. Recently I made a raspberry/mint simple syrup for home made soda! You should give it a shot because I know you are already really good at making simple syrups.
