It is that time of the year when the chives are blossoming profusely.  They are beautiful!

We harvest the blossoms to infuse white vinegar.  The vinegar takes on the subtle chive flavor and its beautiful blossom color.

Harvest the blossoms when they are just open, before they set seeds.  Put the blossoms in a glass jar and pour white vinegar over it. Keep the jar in a cool dark place for two weeks. After two weeks, strain the vinegar through a fine sieve or using cheesecloth. Store the strained vinegar in a glass bottle to add to your dishes.
