Infusing various vinegars with the flowers growing from your indoor garden will provide you with a unique and tasty vinegar you can use to make outstanding homemade salad dressings, marinades and roasted veggies that you won’t find anywhere else!
- Nasturtium flowers are a very popular flower for infusing because of their unique peppery bit that combines wonderful with their floral fragrance.
- Dandelion flowers are another nice choice that adds a honey-like fragrance to your vinegar.
- Sunflower can also be used. Sunflower can add a bittersweet and nutty flavor to your vinegar.
- Marigold flowers are another choice, as they will add a peppery and citrusy flavor.
- Viola flowers will add a sweet, floral taste.
Best of all, the recipe for making your unique, homemade flower vinegar is super simple!
Prep Time: 10 minutes. Infusion Time: 1-3 weeks
Fill a jar with as many of these individual flowers as you can find. Your vinegar will take on the color and flavor of the flowers you use. You can use only one type of flower, or combine them into one recipe.
Choose a high quality, white wine or balsamic vinegar to keep your taste buds happy. Fill the containers holding your flowers with vinegar, seal the container, and let it rest in a cool, dark place for 1-3 weeks.
Now just strain out your flowers and you’re ready to enjoy your flower powered vinegar whenever you’d like. It will store well for at least a year.
