This review is from: Herbal Vinegar: Flavored Vinegars, Mustards, Chutneys, Preserves, Conserves, Salsas, Cosmetic Uses, Household Tips (Paperback)
Maggie Oster's book has helped me in making the most tasty and beautiful herbal vinegars ever. I was stuck in the boring "chive blossom vinegar" or "Tarragon Vinegar" with no variations. After I followed a couple of Maggie's recipes, I livened up my meals immensely! Next, I'm going to try her "Dill-Burnet Cream Dressing" for my salad. It has only 5 ingredients, and they are very easy to find! This book discusses many different types of vinegars (malt, rice, cider, distilled, cane, etc), so I can decide which is best for the type of herbs I want to add. Have you ever tasted raspberry vinegar on a salad in a gourmet restaurant? It's in here! There are many recipes in this great book! Last year, I made Garlic, jalapeno, and black peppercorn vinegar, and my friends wanted the only bottle I made! This year, I'm making more to share.
