Ingredients

Raspberry Vinaigrette: The most luxurious of all: You’ll be delighted to have raspberry vinegar on hand!

  • 1½ cups olive oil
  • ¾ cup raspberry vinegar, or a little less, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons honey, agave, or maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • -Place all ingredients in a glass jar. Store refrigerated. Makes about 2½ cups.

Raspberry Vinegar Ingredients:

  • 1 quart unfiltered apple cider vinegar
  • 3 12-ounce packages fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries (6 cups)

 

Instructions

Heat the vinegar and the raspberries in a stainless steel pot until very hot, just below boiling hot. Turn off the flame, cover the pot, and set it aside for 2 days or more (if you think you will be needing this pot, just transfer the whole mixture to a glass bowl). Stir the mixture and strain it into glass jars, pressing gently on the raspberries to extract all the juice but not the pulp. If desired, add a few fresh or frozen raspberries. Makes about 2 quarts. Store in a glass jar at room temperature.

Cranberry Vinegar Variation: Substitute Cranberries in equal part, fresh or frozen, and chop them coarsely in a food processor. Proceed just as for raspberry vinegar. You might also want to try half cranberries half raspberries, for a fabulous Raspberry Cranberry Vinegar
