Kasey kindly alerted me to this gorgeous vinegar after she saw my spring snapshots. She always knows what’s up. I wasn’t planning on sharing my take on this vinegar because it isn’t much of a recipe and Tim of Lottie+Doof already did such a beautiful job on his post.
I took a quick picture of the process with my phone and then I could not stop. The fluffy purple chive blossoms against their linear chive stalks proved too tempting a subject. After several phone pictures, I grabbed my camera and took more pictures.
Originally, I planned to use the vinegar for vinaigrettes, but I have now used it with excellent results in two recipes that I think you will enjoy. If you have some chives sprouting at your home or access to chive blossoms at the market, I recommend this beautiful infusion. In a few minutes you’ll have the prettiest vinegar ready to go and don’t be surprised if you start taking pictures in an uncontrollable fashion. Two ways to use it are coming right up!
