There are many methods of making flower or herb vinegars. I started making clover vinegar when we started the foraging family project three years ago. This recipe works well.
Fill a quart sized Mason jar with red clover blossoms.
Pour over red clover blossoms. Let sit.
The next day strain liquid back into pot. Boil. Add liquid back to flowers in mason jar. Repeat for 3 to 7 days until liquid becomes purpley pink.
Store clover vinegar in a jar without a metal lid--the vinegar will destroy the lid. The vinegar lasts a long time--I've used mine for over a year.
Red Clover Vinegarette:
I play around with the amounts in this recipe (usually eyeballing it), but try this to start--adjusting the amount of any ingredient to suit your taste.
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red clover vinegar
1 tsp mustard
1 tbsp maple syrup
salt and pepper to taste
Shake well and serve over salad!
