  • 20 to 30 chive blossoms stems removed, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 cup champagne vinegar or white vinegar
  • 1 quart canning jar or recycled jar washed and sterilized


  1. Cut stems from chive blossoms and rinse to remove any dirt or cohabitants. Pat dry or spin in a salad spinner to remove excess water. Place blossoms in the jar.

  2. Heat vinegar to a simmer and pour over the blossoms. Let cool and cap the jar. Place in a cool, dark location for about a week.

  3. After a week or so, strain the vinegar (I used two strainers nested, but a strainer and cheesecloth works) and discard the blossoms. Using a funnel, pour your vinegar into a clear jar or bottle. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Use to make salad dressings in place of regular vinegar. Keeps very well in a dark, cool place.
