    Sorry about the misspelled word in the title. I don't know how to go back and change it.[​IMG]

    I happen to use this vinegar to flavor the chicken for my Chicken with Rice recipe. Just add the vinegar to the chicken and let it marinade in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours, longer if you like a more intense rosemary flavor.
    What you'll need:

    3 cups of a mild vinegar (I use regular White Wine Vinegar)
    1 cup, your choice, of crushed herbs (for this example I will be using Rosemary)
    1- Quart Mason Jar and Lid
    fresh sprigs of the herb(s) you used
    Let's get started:

    Take the rosemary and crush. Keep adding until you get a cup.
    Pour the crushed herbs into the Mason Jar
    Add the 3 cups of vinegar
    Cover and store in a cool, dark place for at least 1 month
    After 1 month:

    Take a strainer and line it with a coffee filter
    strain the vinegar into another vessel
    place 2-3 sprigs of fresh rosemary into a bottle
    using a funnel, pour the vinegar into the bottle until full
    repeat with additional bottles.
    This recipe makes approximately 2 bottles of vinegar. If you have a lot of friends and family, you can always increase the amount you are making. Just remember to keep to the 3:1 ratio; 3 cups of vinegar to 1 cup of crushed herbs. ( to double, it would be 6 cups of vinegar to 2 cups of crushed herbs).

    I have found a great source for the bottles I use. They are decorative and inexpensive. [​IMG]
