Chive Blossom Vinegar

Chive Blossom Vinegar

  • Author: Isabelle Boucher
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 1/2 cups 1x


Chive blossoms add a bright pink colour and delicate chive flavour to regular white vinegar. Use it to upgrade your favourite vinaigrette recipe, or sprinkle onto piping-hot home fries or roasted veggies.


  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh chive blossoms
  • 1 1/2 cups white vinegar


  1. Trim the stems from the chive blossoms, and rinse them under cold water to remove any debris. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Loosely pack the blossoms into a clean 500ml mason jar. Pour in enough white vinegar to fill.
  3. Cover tightly and store in a cool, dark place for a week or two, shaking the jar once a day. (If possible, use a plastic lid, as the vinegar can cause corrosion on metal lids.)
  4. Once the vinegar reaches your desired strength, strain and pour into a pretty glass bottle.
