  • Yield: 1 jar chive flower vinegar
  • Prep: 5 mins

This lovely vinegar was suggested by an herb vendor here at the farmers’ market. It’s easy to make and it adds something wonderful to your salads.



  1. You will also need a pair of tong and a mason jar with a lid.
  2. Wash the mason jar well in hot soapy water.
  3. Put the clean mason jar into a pot of boiling water so that it is completely covered in water and boil for 5 minutes. Carfully use tongs to pull it out and set it to dry completely on a clean cloth. You want there to be no water on the inside because it can cloud the vinegar. But you also don’t want to dry it with a cloth because you could introduce bacteria.
  4. When the jar is dry, cut off all of the chive flowers and snip up some of the stems and put them all in the jar.
  5. Pour white wine vinegar until the jar is full to about 2 cups worth. Cap it tightly and let it sit on your counter, or in a warm place, for 1 week.
  6. Strain through fine cheese cloth or cotton.
