Our family friend, Carla, made some Cranberry-Rosemary Vinegar to give to teachers, co-workers, and other friends this Christmas. We shared a picture on Facebook and many of you wanted to hear more about how she made it.
Carla snapped some pictures when she and her kids made the next batch, and she was kind enough to share the recipe too!
Cranberry Rosemary Vinegar:
- Fresh Rosemary
- Fresh Cranberries
- White Vinegar (Or you could use red wine vinegar.)
Wash and clean vinaigrette bottles. Fill the bottom of a vinaigrette bottle with cranberries. Cut rosemary into sprigs. Place a couple springs of rosemary into the bottle. Fill the bottle with vinegar. We used a funnel to help prevent spillage. Add a dripper plug for easy pouring and then cap the bottles. We decorated our bottles with a bow and a sprig of rosemary. We added custom labels that we created with a little help from Staples.
As the label says, it is great as a marinade or you can use it with a little olive oil for a dressing.
Note: To take advantage of the pretty presentation, it is best to gift this shortly after you make it. After time, the rosemary will begin to yellow a bit and the cranberries will turn the vinegar a pink color.
