Default Vinegar du Jour

I like experimenting with herbed vinegars. My two current favourites
are rosemary/lavender and oregano/purple basil/lemon thyme. The oregano
blend is a very pretty shade of pink. Both make nice vinagiarettes and
accent stonger greens like mesclun blend well.

My MIL loves rosemary and she is a lavender FIEND. How do you make yours?
She loves to do homemade salad dressing; this one could be a winner!

I made herbed vinegars too. I learned that you get crappy cheap herbed
vinegar when you use crappy cheap vinegar. Where you you get YOUR vinegar
for these delightful blends of herbs? Tell the truth. lol

I use one lg sprig of rosemary and two sprigs of lavender. Put into a
bottle that can be corked. Pour warm not hot vinegar over the herbs
then cork and let sit for at least one month. I use about 1/3 of the
flavoured vinegar to 2/3 oil with a little dijon and sugar.

It depends on the results I want. I don't really care for the sharpness
of white vinegar but it does have it's uses. I like a good quality
cider vinegar for some herb blends. As to where I get the vinegar I
think the general assumption should be from a store

Okay, what kind of vinegar would you suggest with this? Cider, rice, wine?

I've used white wine vinegar with good results. You can also use red wine
vinegar, though you'll obviously get a somewhat different flavor.

Thanks, Bob. This may make a nice, attractive birthday or Christmas present
for my MIL. Just put it in a pretty bottle with an appropriately colored
ribbon.
