Strawberry Vinegar


  • 1 quart strawberries, washed, hulled and lightly crushed (or use frozen berries)
  • 3 quarts distilled white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar


  1. Place the berries in a large container.
  2. Heat the vinegar to boiling, then pour over the fruit.
  3. Add the sugar, cover and store in a cool place out of direct sunlight.
  4. After the mixture has infused for at least 2 weeks, filter through cheesecloth or a very fine strainer into clean jars or bottles.
  5. Store in a cool, dark place to retain the color.

Yields about 3 quarts.
