Tarragon and Chamomile Infused Vinegar

Yield: 2 cups

Active Time: 2 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours

1/4 c. dried chamomile (if you can’t find it loose, open up a couple packages of chamomile tea)
1 sprig of fresh tarragon
2 c. white wine vinegar

1) Place the chamomile and tarragon sprig into a bottle which has a 2 cup capacity.
2) Add vinegar and cover.
3) Refrigerate for a minimum of 3 hours to allow the flavors to infuse.

Gifting Idea:

Use a clear, tall bottle to showcase the sprig of tarragon and chamomile. For a sophisticated look, use a wine bottle cork for the lid and decorate with a raffia bow. To maximize shelf life, keep refrigerated until ready to enjoy.

To make the bottle a little easier to open, screw in an eye bolt at the top of the cork. Eye bolts can be found in any hardware store.

  1. Oh, Melissa – I adore infusing oils and vinegars. This flavor combination, though, is so unique and special. This is a great gift – a ribbon and bottles can easily be picked up at an Target or similar store during a routine shopping trip. I think that a slice or two of lemon would also compliment the tarragon and chamomile and lend even more beautiful color. Fantastic photos and great props – and I like the flowers in the background of the first photo. Well-done! Cheers – Shanna
